But herMoreSamantha Riggleman is a junior at Ashton High School. A cross-country runner, shes looking forward to graduating from high school, and shes also enjoying her budding relationship with Brandon, one of the senior twins from across the street. But her dreams and the dreams of all the residents of Corli are shattered when the Ructors declare war. When the Ructors drop the first bombs, the residents evacuate quickly, and Sam becomes separated from her parents and younger sister, Trina. She begins a journey into the abyss of war in a desperate attempt to find her family. During her quest, she sees the best and the worst in people as they cope with the misery war brings. She discovers that soldiers on both sides are similar-some depraved and some good-and that bullets and bombs have no morality- they simply kill. Sam also learns much about herself, finding more courage than she ever imagined and a deep compassion for others that war cant quench. As she searches for her family, she cant help wondering if violence is the way to solve conflict.
