In the near future, fifteen-year-old "Tar" Hutchins is a fixer. He can repair technology just by touching it. That's a dangerous thing to be in a world after The Crash, an event that left millions dead or little more than empty, mindless shells. In the aftermath, a new regime hunts down technology and destroys machines with ruthless zeal, even executing fixers like Tar. And Tar has caught their attention. Now, he's running for his life, desperately searching for other fixers, avoiding the engineers responsible for The Crash, and hoping to save those whose minds have been lost. In his flight, Tar must grow up and come to realize his ability to manipulate tech is more than just "some neat trick." Can a teenager, even a gifted one like Tar, hope to survive — much less be victorious — when an entire government is deadset against him? A good strong storyline with believable characters that helped take the story line along at a fast pace. Well written and constructed.
