              Age range 12+ We are not special. We are just survivors. Pandora wants so much more than what her village can provide. When disaster comes to the River People, Pan has the opportunity to become their saviour and escape her inevitable pairing with life-long friend Matthew. She wan...ts to make her own choices. Deep in her soul, she believes there is something more out there, beyond the boundaries, especially since she encountered the hunter of the Mountain People. A story of confused love, difficult friendships and clumsy attempts at heroism, Pan's fight for her village's survival will bring her into contact with a whole new world, where the truth about the past will have terrifying reverberations for her people's future survival.
