In the city of Jewel, children are escorted by a silver guardchain from the moment they learn how to walk, and are attached securely to their beds at night–how else could the city keep its precious children safe? But Goldie Roth is tired of living chained to her parents, and when Separation Day is abruptly cancelled, she runs away! Now free to roam the city, but with nowhere to go, Goldie discovers Jewel’s most ancient secret: the Museum of Dunt. As she learns about the darker sides of her city, she will need all of her boldness to protect that secret, and the lives of everyone in Jewel.
This is the first installment in a fantastical, dystopian tale for a younger crowd!
