Spunky and determined Christina meets an orphan and helps him escape. The orphans are used to mine zoom, an explosive yet powerful fuel source found in the mountains. Of course the orphans are treated horribly, so Christina decides to help rescue them. Her father is overprotective (and works for Zoompski Labs- the evil orphanage patron) and her mother was blown up in a lab explosion. There is plenty of adventure to keep kids interested, plus children will be able to relate to Christina and Taft, the orphan she rescues. Lots of twists and a few surprises at the end, with a very satisfying conclusion.
