SummaryAdd a Summary
Madeline Landry is poised to take over as heir of Landry Park, the most influential property in Kansas City. Her family is crediting with saving the western world with the introduction of the Cherenkov lanterns that brought power and light to a world darkened by war. Madeline is expected to live up to her family's legacy by getting married and taking her place among the country's leaders. But Madeline dreams of going to college and getting an education.
The Landrys' lives are turned upside down when another upper-class girl is attacked at a party. She points the finger of blame at the Rootless, the lower class workers who dispose of radioactive waste (a slow death sentence). Madeline believes that her fellow debutante is not telling the whole truth and an entire social class is paying the price for her lie. Madeline is caught between doing what her father tells her is the right thing, letting it go, and following her conscience.
