A Novella by

Suze loves her music. She hides in it when her parents fight. The fights end in divorce, and the divorce brings an end to the music - obtained illegally by Suze's mother. Nils, Suze's father, has no idea how to save his daughter's music or her sanity without breaking the law. And he must figure it out quickly, because Suze doesn't have time to wait.

With complete bonus story, "Worlds Apart... And Time."

"Rusch creates a near-future which is horrifying in its plausibility, especially the no-supermen element, and the characters are so immediate; I finished this with tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat, and I suspect it would hit parents even harder. This is really powerful, and really strong."

- Libris Leonis

"A heartwarming and heartbreaking story of the prices a child and their parents make when radical technology is thrust upon a young girl."
- Functional Nerds
