Improvement is just a meme—until it makes Clair’s best friend Libby go insane. With Jesse, the school outcast, and Q, the mysterious voice that speaks to her, Clair sets out to discover the truth behind Improvement and d-mat, technology that allows anyone to teleport across the world. Soon Clair joins with a group opposed to d-mat, and they lead her to Anthony Wallace, the man in charge of the d-mat technology. But Wallace is also the one behind Improvement, using it and d-mat to rule the world. Clair stops Wallace at the cost of her own life, but Q, revealed to be the daughter of the AI regulating d-mat, brings Clair back to life, an action which ends d-mat and Clair’s world itself.
