When thirteen-year-old Mason's parents left him to live on the other side of the country, he swore he would never forgive them, or the invention that kept them so busy... Now they've called him back, promising they can be a family again. But when Mase and his grandmother arrive, the caravan in the shadow of the giant dam is silent and his parents are gone. All that remains is a cryptic message begging him to bring their strange dolphin-like creation to the coast. Mase suddenly finds himself caught in a race where the price of failure is higher than he could ever have imagined. Will he ever see his parents again?
