    Summary

    When I was much younger, my grandfather, and namesake, would take me to Liberty Island. He’d buy us some ice cream and talk about how he left his country to escape the first world war, with my grandmother pregnant with my mother. To Thea, he was a hero. To me, he was the cool guy who bought me ice cream and showed me magic tricks and put my on his strong and broad shoulders at the top of the statue to look out at the ships going by. I hoped another blond-haired, plucky little kid like me was on his grandfather's shoulder, pointing and waving at our boat.

    For good measure, I wave back.

    Summary

    "I ain't betrayin' my brothers." I say stubbornly, trying to keep my tone level. "The strike ain't goin' down, ya can't put cuffs on freedom."
    "Fine." Pulitzer says tightly. "Mr. Snyder, if you please."
    Heavy metal cuffs locked tightly around my wrists, forcing my arms behind my back.
    Glares, insults, and shoves.
    The carriage ride to the Refuge seems like it takes centuries, but in reality it was really only about 20 minutes.

    Jack doesn't take the deal, Pulitzer's threats come to life, and when one door closes so does every other door.
