Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
"I was just a baby when we were relocated and I don't remember much. Everybody has that black hole at the beginning of their life. That time you can't remember. Your first step. Your first taste of table food. My real memories begin in our assigned living area in Compound 14."
Just a generation ago, this place was called America. Now, after the worldwide implementation of a UN-led program called Agenda 21, it's simply known as "the Republic." There is no president. No Congress. No Supreme Court. No freedom.
There are only the Authorities.
Citizens have two primary goals in the new Republic: to create clean energy and to create new human life. Those who cannot do either are of no use to society. This bleak and barren existence is all that eighteen-year-old Emmeline has ever known. She dutifully walks her energy board daily and accepts all male pairings assigned to her by the Authorities. Like most citizens, she keeps her head down and her eyes closed.
Until the day they come for her mother.
"You save what you think you're going to lose."
Woken up to the harsh reality of her life and her family's future inside the Republic, Emmeline begins to search for the truth. Why are all citizens confined to ubiquitous concrete living spaces? Why are Compounds guarded by Gatekeepers who track all movements? Why are food, water and energy rationed so strictly? And, most important, why are babies taken from their mothers at birth? As Emmeline begins to understand the true objectives of Agenda 21 she realizes that she is up against far more than she ever thought. With the Authorities closing in, and nowhere to run, Emmeline embarks on an audacious plan to save her family and expose the Republic--but is she already too late?

Emmeline and her family live in a place that just a generation ago was called America. Now, it's simply known as "the Republic". There is no president. No Congress. No Supreme Court. No freedom.

There are only the Authorities.

Until the day they come for the one she loves most.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.8 out of 5★ by 5reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 Great story. Couldn't put it down. It was scary to see how close we are to something like this happening in our world. I would have liked the story to go farther, but I'm hoping there will be a sequel. The Afterward in the back of the book was also very enlightening. A very well written book and a pleasure to read. 12/05/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by great book, a quick and easy read got extra copies for gifts...really makes you think. 12/06/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by outstanding and scary If you don't read this book, you might live to regret it when it all comes true and it's too late to wake up. I bought my own and gave several as gifts. 12/26/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by I understand this book is fictional based on a United Nations agenda possibility. The book focuses on a young adult female and her life after Agenda 21 is passed. The book was hard to put down after I started reading it. I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next! 12/12/2012
