Malia Poole is a misfit, an old woman in a 22nd-century world where eternal youth is available to all. But she's always been a misfit, a stubbornly dissident author and bibliophile in a world where real books barely exist and digital versions are closely scripted by the plutocracy. Malia tries to hide, tries to forget, but eventually is compelled to pursue the missing pieces of her troubled past, learning that sometimes answers can be more disturbing than the questions.
