Original score by Danny Schade
Welcome to Wheel: a perfect world without poverty, disease, or want. Tinkered and tuned in every way for maximum order by Rank and Spoke, every child knows her destiny - so long as she can take the neural implant.
The defective, whose bodies reject the implants, do not exist. Ghosts. Cyphers. Haunting the edges of society, living on scraps, killed for sport. A lucky few, the Crudrats, scrape out a perilous living cleaning the toxic wastes from the great machines that power the station.
Meet Maura. Cypher. Crudrat. Grown too tall, alone in a spaceport with no use for her, doomed to starve. With only her crud-eating murmel and an alien monster to help her, she must find a way to survive, or escape, before they catch her and blow what's left of her life, and her companions, into space.
From the pen of Gail Carriger, ArtisticWhispers Productions presents an unabridged full-cast young-adult adventure that brings golden age-style science-fiction into the 21st century, stuffs it full of heart and gives it a finely polished, gleaming edge.
