    Summary

    “What do you want?” He asks her, once he's close enough. At this distance she can see the freckles splayed across his cheeks and the way his hair curls at the edges where it's getting longer. It's not surprising that he's wary of strangers, but the iron edge of his voice speaks to something angrier. He's still the best option she's got.

    “A ride.” Clarke hopes her voice doesn't sound as bone weary as she feels. It doesn't pay to be weak out here. That's a lesson she learned the hard way, the scars of it permanently branded under her ribs.

    “Not in the market for a traveling companion,” he says, cold and dismissive, and steps around her to hoist the gas cans into the bed of the truck.

    Summary

    Ninety-seven years ago, a nuclear apocalypse rendered planet Earth unlivable, leaving only the four-hundred people on the twelve space stations as its survivors. Over three generations, these twelve nations joined together to form the unified Ark Station.

    To preserve the human race, the leaders of the Ark implemented strict measures including: capital punishment for anyone over the age of eighteen, a ration system based on job placement, and the arrangement of marriages based on genetic compatibility. If the human race was to return to Earth, it had to be strong to survive.

    Clarke Griffin turned eighteen and celebrated her birthday with a marriage ceremony.

    Summary

    “The second challenge,” he says. “They took people important to the champions. They had to rescue you from the bottom of the lake.”

    Wells keeps talking, something about Monty and gillyweed, but Bellamy’s eyes have instinctively snapped to Clarke on the podium. Important, huh, he thinks, and almost like magic, her bright, blue eyes move to meet his.

    Summary

    They reach the ocean two years after they come back to Earth.

    Some of the kids decide to stay with their parents, of course. But many of the Camp Jaha residents choose to come with them to the sea. All in all, when they arrive at the coast, the procession is 126 people strong.

    Clarke stands on the weathered highway, the weight of the pack on her shoulders suddenly lighter, so much so that she might float away. There’s a beach in front of the road, and beyond that, the ocean is an immense wall of blue.

    (Clarke used to live in space, but somehow the ocean looks bigger than the cosmos ever did.)
