An unlikely friendship is forged between android and student in this wildly imaginative sci-fi mystery from YA star Lauren James.
At an elite academy, attended by the wealthiest students in the galaxy, Hugo works as a watchmaker in a dusty attic room. But he is one of the lucky ones. Many androids like him are jobless and homeless. A privileged student like Dorian could never understand their struggle – or so Hugo thinks when the pompous duke comes knocking at his door with a broken time-travel watch. But when they discover that powerful quantum energy is being stolen from the watches, they fear that someone is plotting a sinister scheme … Can android and student reconcile their differences to discover the truth in time?
