Following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the charismatic Pioneer invited her family to join the Community and escape the evil in the world. The group has thrived under his strict leadership. Now seventeen, Lyla knows certain facts are not to be questioned:

Pioneer is her leader. Will is her Intended. The end of the world is near.

He says his chosen must prepare to fight off the unchosen people, who will surely seek refuge in the Silo, the underground shelter where the Community will wait out the apocalypse. Lyla loves her family and friends, but a chance encounter with an unchosen boy has her questioning Pioneer, the Community—everything. She needs time to figure out the truth.
