Everything Alix knows about her life is a lie. She begins investigating disturbing claims made against her father. Could her dad really be at the helm of a firm that distorts the truth and covers up wrongdoing by hugely profitable corporations that have allowed innocent victims to die? Is it possible that her father is the bad guy? Alix has to make a choice, and time is running out, but can she truly risk everything and blow the whistle on the man who loves her and raised her?

If you wanted to look at evil, it was just a bunch of suits and ties, a bunch of cubicles and computers, the quiet whirring of commerce. Evil wasn't anything. It was just business as usual.

I thought everybody was moneygrubbing. Rich people just do it better.

This is an exciting, high-tech mystery-thriller in which orphaned activists go after the corporations that have contributed to the deaths of their families.
This is a character development story that puts us inside the head of a teen girl having her worldview completely subverted by a series of eye-opening epiphanies.
This is a book with an agenda that takes on some very serious, thought-worthy issues.
The first two, unfortunately, suffer some because of the last. The writing is preachy and repetitive at times as Bacigalupi works over and over to make his point in the hopes it sinks in. And, while Alix's growth is interesting, her actions and reactions didn't always feel realistic to me, but instead molded by the needs of the plot. And I write this as someone on board with the issues and rooting for her changes.
Nevertheless, it was an engaging, gripping read. 3.5 stars.
