Every year in Quill, thirteen-year-olds are sorted into categories: the strong, intelligent Wanteds go to university, and the artistic Unwanteds are sent to their deaths.
When thirteen-year-old Alex is named an Unwanted, his twin brother Aaron, is named a Wanted. But soon Alex discovers a stunning secret–behind the mirage of the “death farm” there is instead a place called Artime, where each child is taught to cultivate their creative abilities. It’s a rare, unique occurence for twins to be separated between Wanted and Unwanted, and as Alex and Aaron’s bond stretches across their separation, a threat arises that will pit brother against brother in an ultimate, magical battle.
