Summary

Lily wasn’t trying to sell those things she stole — she just wanted to have them. So when the judge offers her six weeks on Ellesmere Island helping at a scientific camp over six months in juvenile detention, she takes it. But the days are long in the Arctic and the work is hard, and she just wants to go home.

Then she finds an artifact in an ancient layer of permafrost and the world turns upside down.

A short story by the author of Station OSCX-9.
