Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Life in the hyper-digital age can be rough for an Unregistered American. Refusing connection doesn't just mean opting out of access to the internet-it means opting out of power, communication and, as of January 1st, United States citizenship. By the start of the new year, Federal law will require all residents over the age of ten to agree to the terms and conditions of internet usage; namely, registering a thumbprint signature for personal account verification that will act as a tag for every action and activity. Connected Americans opposed to the Registration Initiative leave in waves for nations with less aggressive access policies. Unconnected Americans, the "Digi-divers" like Henry, Leah and the Lost Boys, will have to overcome both physical and financial impairments as they flee the country on foot, facing the elements, Round-up, and the ever-watchful eyes of the STUA's satellite Video Monitors. The Lost Boys think Austin, Texas is just another stopgap on the road to Matamoros and to freedom, but after Leah falls in with Amos and some kids from the city, her desire to understand the restlessness that can only come from growing up with a world of information at the swipe of a thumb will put all of their lives in mortal danger. The fate of the Lost Boys and the fate of The Unreachable, the anti-Registration publication they've been plastering on the windows of homes along the interstate, will fall squarely in Leah's shaky, seventeen year old hands.

Riassunto: Life in the Hyper-Digital Age can be rough for an Unregistered American. Refusing connection doesn’t just mean opting out of access to the internet—it means opting out of power, communication and, as of January 1st, United States citizenship.

By the start of the new year, Federal law will require all residents over the age of 10 to agree to the terms and conditions of internet usage; namely, registering a thumbprint signature for personal account verification that will act as a tag for every action and activity. Connected Americans opposed to the Registration Initiative leave the country in waves for nations with less aggressive access policies. Unconnected Americans, the “Digi-divers” like Henry, Leah, and the Lost Boys, will have to overcome both physical and financial obstacles as they flee the country on foot, facing the elements, Round-up, and the ever-watchful eyes of the STUA’s satellite Video Monitors.

The Lost Boys think Austin, Texas is just another stopgap on the road to Matamoros and to freedom, but after Leah falls in with Amos and some kids from the city, her desire to understand the restlessness that can only come from growing up with a world of information at the swipe of a thumb will put all of their lives in mortal danger. The fate of the Lost Boys and the fate of The Unreachable, the anti-Registration publication they’ve been plastering on the windows of homes along the interstate, will fall squarely in Leah’s shaky, seventeen-year-old hands.
