2083 finds seventeen-year-old Oliver Crane living in the Cradle, a utopian compound nestled in the Pacific Northwest. Yet more than comfort he wants answers—answers to what has become of the outside world, a world ravaged by rising seas. That answer comes in the form of Nya, a teen raised in the coastal migrant camps. Together they start digging, and soon uncover the Cradle’s terrifying thirty-year mission. Refusing to sit and watch the tragedy unfold, the only questions are whether they can stop the compound scientists from launching a global assault on the remnants of humanity, and how dearly this attempt will cost them.
