(From the publisher):
In the country of last things the masses are homeless, theft is so rampant it is no longer a crime, and death—by arranging either a suicide or assassination—is the only way out.
Anna Blume comes to an unnamed city in search of her brother. In her struggle to survive, Anna becomes a scavenger in search of objects from the past to sell for food and shelter. But she will also find friendship—even love—in this devastated world.
