This book tells of a future where cities are protected by weather-resistant domes, where mutant animals roam the dry, harsh Outside world, where a giant company puts off the truth about the end of the world to the very last strands of what the domes can withstand, and where people are under the spell of the CloudNet, the system that convinces people that their world is just fine. This book is about Eli, who does not put his full faith into his family's company, InfiniCorp, and asks questions about the safety and lives of people. Finally, a secret agency contacts Eli, telling him they have the answers he seeks, and pulling him away from the cocoons of lies everyone else lives in. This is an exciting adventure about a boy trying to prove that InfiniCorp, is not "taking care of everything", as they claim. This story draws you in and makes you wonder about how much harm we are really doing to our Earth.
