It's not a good time to be famous.
It's 300 years in the future. The EC, a separate minority that keeps alive old traditions, have a risky balance with the hostile invaders who rule their world. When Katia Fierten's family are forced out of their isolated home, she finds herself living in the large city of Wyncon. But Wyncon is home to a very popular acting club among the EC and when Katia's brother Frank is chosen for the lead role--with the entire city coming to see him--he and Katia are swept into the complicated and often hilarious challenge of putting on the absurdly bombastic and difficult classic, The Pirate. Katia's neighbor Ulf might be more interested in her than in the mysterious disappearance of her brother's robotic dog, and a surprise invitation from long-lost relatives rapidly spirals out of control when it turns out the city leader might be involved. With all eyes turned to her on opening night, Katia will have to navigate as best she can.

It's 2335 and for two hundred years society has been divided into the EC, a small and dwindling minority that keeps ties to the old world, and the Invaders, whose lives of violence, action, and poverty lie just outside the doors of the EC. Spending all her life among the EC, kindly old Miss Plummer knows little of how rapidly things are changing and she is in for a rude awakening when she begins to learn that the EC are the ones she can’t trust, not the Invaders. The world is not what it once was and Miss Plummer, set in her ways, isn’t equipped to keep up with it. Consuela, the hard-nosed, sharp-tongued Invader hair-stylist she invites to join her on a disaster relief effort, is honest, hard-working, and quite willing to be friends.
When Miss Plummer goes to stay with a long-absent friend and his family of spoiled daughters, she soon finds herself in the midst of treachery and deceit. It will be up to her unexpected new ally, Consuela, to pull her out of it.
