The debut novelette in a science fiction series.
Teleportation. Auto-piloting cars and massive highways in the sky to propel them along. Magnificently large towers with millions of citizens. But none of this is as impressive to 14-year old Derek Osmond as his own sister, Treva. When she’s chosen to demonstrate her admirable work on a new technology, Derek sneaks along to Luxesto, the technological center of the world in 26th-century Earth. But Derek has no idea what he’s about to discover.
