While searching for clues about his father, and the home planet he’s never known, Gardner begins a unique and secret inter-planetary friendship with a foster girl named Tulsa.

In a world difficult to comprehend, he finds comfort in numbers. And when Nathan is taken under the wing of unconventional and anarchic teacher, Mr. Humphreys, the pair forge an unusual friendship.
