The Tomorrow series meets The Hunger Games, in a divided city where danger is real and friendship is everything

The city is at war.

Southside, the hostiles live in squalor and desperation. They’re hungry to cross the river. Cityside, Internal Security is in charge. Its job—keep the hostiles at bay.

Now Nik is on the run.

And Fyffe is going with him.

Across the bridge.
