Our graphic novel begins with five kids looking for their new home, troubled foster children picked up in a futuristic van and whisked off to a crystalline manor in the moutains.  What would you do if you came to find yourself living in a home where anything is possible, where global information is a touch away and time and space are no object?  How would you choose to change the world?
