Son of ArcOne's powerful Overlord, 14-year-old Tomi has looked forward to Acces Day all his life. On that day, his infopak will be surgically implanted in his back, connecting him with the vast knowledge of the domed city's computers.
But soon after, Tomi begins to wonder why some of ArcOne's inhabitants receive the gift of wisdom, while others are condemned to live as slaves. When a rebellion leaves him stranded in the wilderness beyond the city's walls, Tomi finds that he must choose between the freedom he discovers outside ArcOne and an old way of life that conflicts with his new beliefs.
A well-written coming-of-age novel for young adults
