It tells her when to eat. It tells her when to sleep. It even tells her when to go to the toilet. For Penna - and for everyone else - life is controlled by the LOP, or Life Organisation Programmer, attached to their wrists. So when the LOPs all go wrong, the world descends into chaos. Penna and her new friend Veeka must start to make decisions for themselves. And find out the dark secrets behind their ordered world.
