In order to fund Martha's research to find new antibiotics, Rosa performs her riskiest operation yet, on a space station hundreds of miles above earth, all through virtual robotics. But even the perils of a solar storm are nothing compared to an emergency surgery which hits Rosa close to home-the results of which change her life forever.

    The story overall from Kenney feels rushed, and hurried without a purpose as there is no looming threat or bad guy breathing down the neck of our heroine. The main plot feels heavy burdened by her own personal backstory of her moms death, complicated sibling relationships, and own personal attempt at saving the world as a one woman surgeon. Despite the art being beautiful and feeling at place in the storys setting in the year 2036, the real bones of the story do not seem to be set yet. The main character is certainly fleshed out, but there are a lot of minor stories creeping up around that make the book as a whole feel flustered and cluttered. Just like a classic black dress, sometimes over accessorizing is the worst thing you can do and that is what this story feels like; a simple black dress with one too many pieces of jewelry added on.
