Baker & Taylor
When a newcomer is threatened by the rules that are supposed to protect the members of their utopian community, Mori and her friends run away to find help only to be confronted by different perspectives and unexpected challenges that force them to understand the complicated reality of their supposedly perfect world.

McMillan Palgrave

Mori and her friends Julia, Benji, and Theo have never seen life beyond the walls of their perfect society, Old Harmonie. That changes when their new friend Ilana is threatened by the rules that are supposed to keep them all safe. They escape together, hoping to find help in Boston with Dr. Agatha Varden, one of Old Harmonie's pioneering founders.

But the outside world is nothing like they anticipated. As they face challenges they never expected and encounter a group of kids from the outside, Mori and the others begin to understand the complicated reality of their supposedly perfect community. With the help of these new friends, they just might be able to save Ilana . . . but at what cost?

This thought-provoking sequel to Megan Frazer Blakemore's stunningly imaginative novel, The Firefly Code, gives readers a chance to see our world in a brand new light.

To save one of their own, five kids escape the walls of their utopian community and journey into the outside world on an adventure that will change their lives forever.

& Taylor

Mori and her friends set out to seek help for Ilana from Dr. Varden, one of the founders of Old Harmonie, but meeting Outsiders gives them a new perspective on their utopian community.
