The Forever Contract(A Dystopian YA Novella)
The story is good but short. I wanted to read more, find out what happens next.
The world is in a drought for years. No one has grass, it is illegal to have your own garden. Thier are food shortages, water shortages. You can buy gel packs that work in your body instead of water.
A system was developed where you sign a contract snd your body goes in a warehouse,hooked up to feeding tubes and you get uploaded to a virtual world. You can have anything you want thier. You can be whatever you want. never in pain,thirsty or hungrey.
You have to be 17 to sign most did on thier birthdays. Casey will be turning 17 soon.
She wants to go in. but her boyfriend James does not trust the system. Her brother joined and tells her its great.
James is working with others to get the truth out about the system but Casey thinks it is fine. James takes her to the warehouse to see her brothers body.
I like James and Casey and want to see more of them and find out more about life is like for them. It is really short only 56 pages. It does a good job telling the story.
It is a clean book.
Thier is lots of drama and action as they get caught breaking in to see the bodies.
I was given this ebook to read from Librarything and asked to give a honest review of it.
