Overview

MERI BECKLEY LIVES IN A WORLD WITHOUT LIES. When she looks at the peaceful Chicago streets, she feels pride in the era of unprecedented hope and prosperity over which the government presides. But when Meri's mother is killed, Meri suddenly has questions that no one else seems to be asking. And when she tries to uncover her mother's state of mind in her last weeks, she finds herself drawn into a secret world-with a history she didn't know existed. Suddenly, Meri is faced with a choice between accepting the truth or embracing a world the government doesn't want anyone to see-a world where words have the power to change the course of a country and where the wrong one can get Meri killed.
