Sonya Ogino, a bright but uncertain college student, is struggling to declare a major before the end of her sophomore year, when she suddenly finds her life changed forever when she learns she is a carrier of a genetically evolved, cognitive ability called Absolute Memory.

After she is almost killed, her beloved godmother arranges for her to be transported to the mysterious "safe island" of Palekaiko; where many other Absolute Memory carriers from all over the country reside. However, once she uncovers the real forces in charge of Palekaiko, together with a team of fellow carriers - including a ukulele-playing, self-proclaimed uber fan of Phil Collins - Sonya must summon the inner endurance to rise and fight inaction with action.

Set in an optimistic future, this is a story about trust and legacy, about what makes sense and nonsense, repetitive history and the meaning of freedom, and the value and power of mind and memory.
