Chapter 1 PURESTATE A quantum system that cannot be described as a mixture of any others Saturday night, and Cade was headed to the one place on Andana that she didn’t hate. The one place where she could be around other humans and almost stand it. First she had to put on the right armor: black skirt, black gloves. Spiked her lashes with a bit of black market mascara, checked the effect in a broken-tipped triangle of mirror. Added two matching oil slicks of eyeliner. Grabbed her guitar.

Each breath was dust and dust and air—in that order. Each breath made her lungs curl into fists, ready to fight their way back to some blinked-out mother planet—a place she would never see because it didn’t exist. Cade swung her guitar case over the line that meant theend of the Andanan deserts and the beginning of Voidvil. It was a real line—dunes on one side, and, on the other, buildings that shot like dark fingers out of the sand. Cade didn’t love the deserts of Andana.

From the Publisher
Alone was the note Cade knew best. It was the root of all her chords.
Seventeen-year-old Cade is a fierce survivor, solo in the universe with her cherry-red guitar. Or so she thought. Her world shakes apart when a hologram named Mr. Niven tells her she was created in a lab in the year 3112, then entangled at a subatomic level with a boy named Xan.
Cade's quest to locate Xan joins her with an array of outlaws-her first friends-on a galaxy-spanning adventure. And once Cade discovers the wild joy of real connection, there's no turning back.

"[An] accomplished debut."
—Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Rock and roll crashes head-on into sci-fi in this outing from debut author Capetta. . . Raucous, fun, and futuristic, this should appeal to fans of Antony John's Five Flavors of Dumb and R. J. Anderson's Ultraviolet."
"This is an accomplished debut, an intriguing and thought-provoking space adventure that will hopefully lead to a sequel."
—VOYA, 4Q 4P S
"A rollicking space adventure perfect for fans of the cult classic TV show Firefly."
—The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
