15 kids meet one summer and are offered a chance to play a "game" which seems pretty cool to them. Little do they know they pretty much have no choice and no one wins this game. Each kid will have an opportunity to pilot a giant robot in order to save the world, but the price is pretty high, as the first pilot finds out. The other children all handle the aftermath in different ways. The author does a great job of giving each kid a background and compelling reason to do what they do. He doesn't shirk on the brutality and unfairness of life.
