This book is the first in the series, and it is VERY good! There is a lot of detail in the book, and even though the book is pretty unrealistic as far as their lifestyle goes, it still is very good and interesting to read.

Leanna attends a virtual school. For her history assignment she experiences a program that lets her actually experience being a runaway slave in Harriet Tubman's underground railroad. She then goes back to the virtual homeroom to discuss with her fellow students, who could be next door or across the country, how her experience compared to theirs. In the real world she lives with her mom in a community where most menial tasks are performed by manufactured biological clones who are treated as property, not human beings. As far as Leanna is concerned these creatures have no connection to the slaves in ancient United States history. But then her world is turned upside down. Her mom and her beloved Doc-Doc are both arrested for treason because they are members of the Liberty Bell Movement. Her mom calls herself an abolitionist, not an extremist. Leanna's assumptions about history, reality and her own identity are tested in this futuristic thriller.

Living in the town of Chewandswallow was wonderful. All your meals, cooked and ready to eat, rained, snowed, or hailed down from the sky. Each day, the town's people would carry their plates, glasses, and silverware outside to catch whatever the weather served. Sometimes it would rain soup and juice. Other days it would snow mash potatoes and green peas. You never knew what the weather would bring. Each day, the town's Sanitation Department did a remarkable job of cleaning up the leftovers. Life in Chewandswallow was perfect, until one day the weather started to get out of hand. The food falling from the sky started to get larger, heavier, overcooked, or undercooked. A storm of pancakes and maple syrup nearly destroyed the whole town. The Sanitation Department couldn't keep up. So the town's people did the only thing they could do. They made ships out of bread and sailed away to find a new home. After sailing on the open seas for a few days, they finally reached a small town. There, they were welcomed with open arms. Everyone from Chewandswallow was happy with their new lives. However, it did seem odd to them that now they would have to get their meals from the grocery store instead of the sky.
