But when her family disappears and she’s branded a criminal, Piper’s future is flatlined in a heartbeat. Driven into hiding, she learns that wealthy American climate refugees have been buying their way across Cascadia’s closed border. Even more sinister, someone is deporting the nation’s poor to make room for them.
If Piper is ever to see her family again, she’ll have to rally every scrap of her battered grit to decipher who’s behind the disappearances. But those responsible will stop at nothing to protect their secrets, and Piper’s only hope may be the very boy whose family displaced her own.

In addition to being a YA author, Lisa Nowak is a retired amateur stock car racer, an accomplished cat whisperer, and a professional smartass. She writes coming-of-age books about kids in hard luck situations who learn to appreciate their own value after finding mentors who love them for who they are. She enjoys dark chocolate and stout beer and constantly works toward employing wei wu wei in her life, all the while realizing that the struggle itself is an oxymoron.
Lisa has no spare time, but if she did she’d use it to tend to her expansive perennial garden, watch medical dramas, take long walks after dark, and teach her cats to play poker. For those of you who might be wondering, she is not, and has never been, a diaper-wearing astronaut. She lives in Milwaukie, Oregon, with her husband, several feline companions, and two giant sequoias.
