    Summary

    Wakaba Shinohara, a whale song composer, wakes up in an Island; unnamed and abandoned. Her only companion is a castaway like herself called Dean Thomas whose injuries have made too weak to speak properly. Wakaba has no recollection of her past life instead of "friends" that she may or may not have met. Dean, however, remembers and writes in an old notebook about his life. But soon they are ambushed by an army of Jacks programmed to kill or salvage. Across the island there is a young hermit named Ralph who has been living peacefully until he realizes that the Toms have finally been destructed underpinning their purpose. The island is a programme run by a Dr. Pottear on the availability of community life. But why have these strange things happening in the island? Will Wakaba and Dean and others find out before it's too late for them?
