Kidnapped from the airport and told that he is in grave danger, Wil finds himself on the run from the mysterious and menacing "poets," while teenager Emily escapes homelessness with an invitation to a prestigious and exclusive school that teaches much more than your average subjects. The two parallel stories eventually converge as Barry reveals more and more pieces of the puzzle in an action-packed thriller with the power of words and language at its center.
