Book Summary

Two Girls Test Friendship and Survival in a Grim Future World...

        Three years before the events of Drone, Vikka and Rylee are best friends staring up at the Dome that covers Alpha City, wishing they knew what lay beyond it, wishing they weren't both destined to be nothing but drones working in the factories of the New World Plutonomy. The difference is, Vikka's parents are disabled and she has a special dispensation that allows her to avoid going to work. Rylee doesn't. Worse, Rylee has an abusive father and an overactive imagination. When she wishes she lived outside the Dome, she means it. After Rylee runs away, Vikka tries desperately to find her before it's too late... No one has ever escaped the Dome. The planet is supposed to be unlivable. And even if anything is alive outside, they're probably monsters... but there are monsters inside the Dome too. Human monsters just looking to take advantage of young girls who will do anything to escape the factories. Can Vikka save Rylee in time?
