by Nathan Hale. New York, NY: Amulet Books, 2017.

Glimpsing at our future, Earth is now run by aliens ("Pipers") who suck up electricity and technology leaving humans on the run or living in a pre-electrical age. Strata and her family are part of a caravan of digital rescuers, but when Strata, her brother, and their fiend Inby are separated from the others (after discovering what appears to be a special robotic pony). They rely on the beautiful pony as they escape outlaws and aliens while hoping to find their moving-caravan homes.
