“a compelling fantasy world with humor and heart.” — Gene Luen Yang

A girl with a deadly lung disease...

A boy with a tragic past...

A bargain that brings life, but may cost more than anyone can imagine...

Madeline Oliver has never wanted for anything, but now she would give anything just to breathe. Jason Wu skates through life on jokes, but when a tragedy leaves him guilt-stricken, he promises to tell only the truth, no matter the price. When a mysterious stranger named Hanali appears to Madeline and offers to heal her in exchange for one year of service to his people, Madeline and Jason are swept into a strange land where they don’t know the rules and where their decisions carry consequences that reach farther than they could ever guess.
