Maria has just come into a few million dollars from a father she's never met. Instead of spending it on typical goods like any other teenager, Maria founds her own town, Mariasburg. She and twenty-six other teens transform an old ghost town, newly designed as a place for teens to rediscover themselves, their feelings, and escape their parents. But sometimes trying to do something new doesn't bode well with established norms, and Maria and her friends have to try to survive a storm of violence and manipulation from those who don't want her to succeed.
