This story is one of my favorites! I loved reading from both Amy and Elder's perspectives - their different takes on the events that occurred were incredibly helpful in revealing the plot and character developments. I can't wait for the sequel!

The laws of physics, the language of music and the promise of human connection converge on the outskirts of space, in this epic and intriguing YA sci-fi novel, where 17-year-old Cade is discovering that the only thing harder than being all alone in the universe is being Entangled.
Alone was the note Cade knew best. It was the root of all her chords.
Seventeen-year-old Cade is a fierce survivor, solo in the universe with her cherry-red guitar. Or so she thought. Her world shakes apart when a hologram named Mr. Niven tells her she was created in a lab in the year 3112, then entangled at a subatomic level with a boy named Xan.
Cades quest to locate Xan joins her with an array of outlaws—her first friends—on a galaxy-spanning adventure. And once Cade discovers the wild joy of real connection, theres no turning back.
Book 2 in the New York Times bestselling trilogy, perfect for fans of Battlestar Gallactica and Prometheus!
