""The end of the world started quietly enough for Tane Williams and Rebecca Richards. . . ." "Tane and Rebecca aren't sure what to make of it--a sequence of 1s and 0s, the message looks like nothing more than a random collection of alternating digits. Working to decode it, however, they discover that the message contains lottery numbers . . . lottery numbers that win the next random draw! More messages follow, and slowly it becomes clear--the messages are being sent from Tane and Rebecca's future. Something there has gone horribly wrong, and it's up to them to prevent it from happening. The very survival of the human race may be at stake! "[A] terrifying SF page-turner!"--"Booklist""A tautly constructed plot. Fast-paced and all-too-realistic. This technothriller offers gearhead ecowarriors everything, including a hugely satisfying ending.""--Kirkus Reviews A Top 10 Kid's Indie Next Winter PickA Junior Library Guild Selection"
