As the UN peacekeeping force prepares to hand the reins of control fully back to the American government, there are new anti-Psi tensions roiling beneath the surface of the country thanks to vocal groups who feel that the government isn't doing enough to control them. Zu is a famous Psi figure, perhaps second only to Ruby, who is now all the more infamous for having gone off the grid and disappeared from public life.
Zu is living a comfortable, fairly sheltered life as a PR mouthpiece for the UN's American transition government. She won't admit to herself that she's unhappy with her rehearsed existence, especially since she's become frustratingly distant from the original gang. During one such speech, Zu is framed for an explosion that kills several of the people present. In fleeing the scene, she narrowly escapes a kidnapping attempt by the people truly responsible for it.
Now on the run as a fugitive, Zu discovers that Ruby has vanished and Liam and the others have kept it secret from her. Now at odds with the wishes of the people she loves, Zu becomes convinced that Ruby's disappearance is related to her own kidnapping attempt-and that, by finding Ruby, she can prove her own innocence by exposing whatever group was behind the explosion.
While Zu initially struggles with wondering if Ruby left them behind by choice, the truth is far worse: Ruby was secretly following a Psi trafficking ring selling children to other countries and crime organizations. Now it's up to Zu and the others to dismantle it-and save Ruby from her unexpected captors-before their future goes up in flames.
The final title in the NYT bestselling series that is now a major motion picture.

Praise for the A Wrinkle in Time Trilogy:
“A Wrinkle in Time is one of my favorite books of all time. I've read it so often, I know it by heart. Meg Murry was my hero growing up. I wanted glasses and braces and my parents to stick me in an attic bedroom. And I so wanted to save Charles Wallace from IT.” —Meg Cabot on A Wrinkle in Time
“A book that every young person should read, a book that provides a road map for seeking knowledge and compassion even at the worst of times, a book to make the world a better place.” —Cory Doctorow on A Wrinkle in Time
“A suspenseful, life-and-death drama that is of believable cosmic significance. Complex and rich in mystical religious insights, this is breathtaking entertainment.” —School Library Journal, starred review on A Wind in the Door
“Madeleine L'Engle mixes classical theology, contemporary family life, and futuristic science fiction to make a completely convincing tale that should put under its spell both readers familiar with the Murrys and those meeting them for the first time.” —The New York Times Book Review on A Wind in the Door
“An intricately woven fantasy. . . . Theme is L'Engle's greatest forte, and once again she proves this with a compelling plot, rich in style that vibrates with provocative thoughts on universal love, individual caring, and the need for the joy in living.” —Booklist, starred review on A Swiftly Tilting Planet
