People live either UnderBubble or OutBubble - in the protected cities or in the wilderness without electricity, gasoline, or any other modern convenience. Ford Falcon's family lives OutBubble in a slapdash shelter on Skullduggery Ridge near Goldmine Gulley, an old trash heap where they scavenge for lumber and supplies. A partnership of government and corporations have genetically modified URCorn, a miracle food that makes people stronger and healthier. That is, if you can eat it. And the GreyDevils, strange creatures, human mostly, will do anything for URCorn. Anything.
Add in solar bears and weird weather that cannot decide if it is summer or winter and you can bet life is not easy. But there is something much more mysterious going on, and Ford Falcon thinks it has something to do with her father. When she returns from a bartering trip to find her home ransacked and her family gone, Ford must find her own way and prove that she can face the world's hardships alone.
