Lee Cuddy is seventeen years old and on the run, alone on the streets of Philadelphia. After taking the fall for a rich friend, Lee reluctantly accepts refuge in the Crystal Castle - a cooperative of homeless kids squatting in an austere, derelict building. But homeless kids are disappearing from the streets in suspicious numbers, and Lee quickly discovers that the secret society?s charitable façade is too good to be true. She finds an unexpected ally in Tomi, a young artist and hacker whose knowledge of the Internet?s black market is rivalled only by his ability to break into and out of buildings.

This book is strange. It goes all over the place. Is it a teen novel? Is it about Art? Is it about unprotected sex? Is it about relationship? I thought Lee the main heroine in the story was okay, but it was too much of a fantasy. It has an odd ending ,as well. And the big thing I want to point out is that there are two people running around, they are invovled with Art and their are secrets and people involved. It so much like a tennage version of a Dan Brown Novel.
