His plan is to rule over an obedient population and to instil his tastes into the under-tens by placing them in the care of governesses inrobot-policed Detainer Zones. Sweets and other food are the most important things in this world, and the source of all power-and so they are fiercely controlled by Stannic.Something has to be done! When Lydia manages to escape, she is recruited by a group of girls on a mission. Together, they embark on a quest through jungles, tunnels, and caves, past natural and man-made hazards, to find a number of forbidden and dangerous sweets, which eventually they will use inan audacious plan to bring down the tyrannous Stannic and his regime for ever.
