    In a future U.S., states have become countries, magical viruses run rampant, and refugees are ruthlessly deported. Sixteen-year-old Noam Alvaro, son of undocumented immigrants, wakes up in a hospital room to find he's the only surviving member of his family and that his off-the-chart magical technological skills have caught the attention of Carolinia's defense minister, Calix Lehrer. Although under Lehrer's protection, Noam intends to subvert Lehrer's plans and continue to work to help refugees—but then he meets and falls in love with Lehrer's son, Dara, and he begins to question everyone's motives, including his own. Lee captures the thorny, ill-defined, and obsessive nature of many a teen romance in Noam and Dara's relationship. This fast-paced, issue-driven thriller will collect readers, who will eagerly anticipate the sequel. With references to the Holocaust as well as present-day issues of immigration, deportation, martial law, and racism, Lee has worked philosophical and current-day realities into a promising series opener. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
