It''s the middle of the twenty-first century and the elite children of New Middletown are lined up to receive a treatment that turns them into obedient, well-mannered citizens. Maxwell Connors, a fifteen-year-old prankster, misfit and graffiti artist, observes the changes with growing concern, especially when his younger sister, Ally, is targeted. Max and his best friend, Dallas, escape the treatment, but must pretend to be "zombies" while they watch their freedoms and hopes decay. When Max''s family decides to take Dallas with them into the unknown world beyond New Middletown''s borders, Max''s creativity becomes an unexpected bonus rather than a liability.

About the Book

In the not-too-distant future, Max tries to maintain his identity in a world where the only way to survive is to conform and obey.

Read from the Book

Living with hope is like rubbing up against a cheese grater. It keeps taking slices off you until there''s so little left you just crumble.

From the Publisher

It''s the middle of the twenty-first century and the elite children of New Middletown are lined up to receive a treatment that turns them into obedient, well-mannered citizens. Maxwell Connors, a fifteen-year-old prankster, misfit and graffiti artist, observes the changes with growing concern, especially when his younger sister, Ally, is targeted. Max and his best friend, Dallas, escape the treatment, but must pretend to be "zombies" while they watch their freedoms and hopes decay. When Max''s family decides to take Dallas with them into the unknown world beyond New Middletown''s borders, Max''s creativity becomes an unexpected bonus rather than a liability.

From the Jacket

Quick-witted, prank-pulling graffiti artist Maxwell Connors is more observant than the average New Middleton teenager. And he doesn''t like what he sees. New Middleton''s children are becoming frighteningly obedient, and their parents and teachers couldn''t be happier. As Max and his friend Dallas watch their classmates transform into model citizens, Max wonders if their only hope of freedom lies in the unknown world beyond New Middleton''s walls, where creativity might be a gift instead of a liability.
