After Abdi Taalib meets Tegan Oglietti, his world is turned upside down. Tegan's no ordinary girl --- she died in 2027, and was frozen and brought back 100 years later. Now, all they want is for things to return to normal, but the government has other ideas. On the run, Abdi and Tegan uncover startling details about Australia's cryonics program, and realize that thousands of lives may be in their hands.

On what should have been the best day of 16-year-old Tegan's life, she dies and wakes up 100 years in the future, locked in a government facility with no idea what happened. Tegan is the first government guinea pig to be cryonically frozen and successfully revived. But the future isn't all she hoped it would be, and when appalling secrets come to light, Tegan must make a choice.
