But as a Havenot, Victoria cannot travel on the roads that are now controlled by the Haves, the small percent of the population that regulate all forms of fuel. Because she is an insulin-dependent diabetic, Victoria supports herself as a trader in the black-market, supplying batteries and medication to the Havenots and insulin to herself. She has enough insulin for a few days, but she knows shell have to make a trade soon to keep herself alive.After crossing illegally into the Haves zone, Victoria travels as far as New Haven, the location of the largest fuel Depot in Northeast. Using a fuel card she lifted from a driver who gave her a ride, she steals gallons of fuel, which she hopes to trade for enough cash and insulin to continue her journey. She is captured and taken to the Depot- Victoria knows that if the Haves discover that she is insulin-dependent, shell be eliminated before she even gets a chance to escape, as they consider the medically-compromised to be dispensable. But the new Commander of the Depot keeps her secret and supplies her with enough insulin to keep her alive. He seems to know something about Victoria and her family that even Victoria doesnt know.
