TOR (US), February 2002
Amanda is a brilliant violinist, a mathematical genius, and a rebel. Impatient for the adult status her society only grants at age 30, but determined to have a real adventure first, she seeks thrills at the risk of life and limb.
Mathewmark, who lives on a reservation known as the Valley of the God of One's Choice, is younger than Amanda in years. But in his society, he is already considered a man.
When Amanda and Mathewmark get together, the result is often humorous, sometimes moving, and ultimately enlightening for both of them.
Their unlikely friendship takes place against a backdrop of a world that is about to change forever.
A brilliant young woman, a teenage boy and a resurrected man, coming of age in a hgh-tech utopia.
