Summary
Follows three teen girls--Sylvie, Laiping, and Fiona--who live on three different continents but are linked together by the mineral coltan, or blue gold, that's used in cell phones
Summary
Coltan, or "blue gold," is a rare mineral used in making cell phones and computers. Across continents, the lives of three teen girls are affected by the "blue gold" trade. Sylvie's family had to flee the Democratic Republic of the Congo after her father was killed by a rogue militia gang in the conflict for control of coltan. The refugee camp where she now lives is deplorable, and Sylvie yearns for a way out -- to save not only herself, but her remaining family.
