Imagine Snow White with 7 bumbling mining drones: Dimwit, Ticktock, Clank and Clunk, Zippy, Whirligig, and Cusser. Yes, Cusser. Essie works on these drones daily, "stitching" their code to keep them running for the frozen mining planet of Thanda where she has been hiding for 8 years. When Candaran Dane's shuttle crashes on the planet, she helps him fix the shuttle even cage fighting for some needed parts but he kidnaps her in hopes that he can use her as leverage in an ongoing war between planets. As Essie learns more about what's really going on with her home-planet, Windsong, she must make an important decision to either save herself or save the galaxy.  (Oklahoma Sequoyah Award, 2017)
