Nick, his brother Kevin, and their adopted sister Cass, have spent their whole lives in a community in the wilderness, hiding out from the robots that have enslaved mankind. The day that Kevin discovers a mysterious piece of metal changes their lives forever - because the metal that tech loving Kevin picked up is some sort of homing device that leads the robots directly to the community. The robots attack, and the three teens barely make it out alive -

Taking refuge in their sheltered hideout, they decide they canít stay put; they have to head for the city to find out if everyone they care for have been taken prisoner. All survivors were captured and taken to one of the robots' Cities -- and theyíve been hearing about the cities their whole lives, a place where humans are treated like animals, living in outdoor pens and forced to build new bots until they drop dead from exhaustion. When they finally get to the city, itís nothing like they've been told.

As they live among the bots for the first time, they realize they're fighting for more than just their family. The robots have ruled for too long, and now it's time for a revolution.   (New Hampshire Isinglass Teen Book Award, 2014)
