About the Book
17-year-old Philadelphia has been imprisoned most of her life because of her Christian beliefs. When her father is sent to Mars against his will to work on a mysterious science project and a benevolent official allows her to accompany him, Philadelphia knows she must keep her head down or be sent back to prison on Earth. But when she stumbles into the wrong hallway and accidentally learns too much, Philadelphia is faced with a question she doesn’t want to answer: the choice between returning to Earth — or destroying it.

What Reviewers are Saying
“One day while I was busy mindlessly entering data into the computer at work, I put on my head phones and started listening to the book. I was hooked from the first few sentences. In fact, I stayed up late when I got home (even though I had to get up early the next morning) to finish the book.” -Amazon Reviewer

Cea was silent. I glanced over at her. She was bent over the crate, holding the digital picture frame in her hands.
The picture of Ephesus was still on the screen.
Cea frowned and squinted.
“That’s my older brother,” I explained.
She jerked her head up. Her face was colorless. “He’s your brother?”
“Was.” I looked down at the gray sweater in my hands. “He was sent to Mars on scientific business as well… But his transit home exploded.”
“I know,” Cea said quietly.
I looked up again. “You know?”
She nodded and stood up. She held the frame close to the wall, and the magnets snapped into place. “I’ve met him.” She gave the corner a tweak, adjusting the position. She regarded the image for a moment, then glanced back at me.
“This was the base he worked at.”
