But no one is sure whether the Straker Tapes are a work of fiction or an eerie peek into an unimaginable past.Nearly sixteen-year-old Peter Vincent has been raised to believe that everything that the backward Strakerites cling to is insane--an utter waste of time and potential. Since his father is David Vincent, genius inventor of the artificial beesthat saved the world'scrops and prevented massive famine, how could Peter believe anything else?But when Peter meets Alpha, a Strakerite his own age, suddenly the theories about society-upgrades don't sound quite so...
