This “appetizer” book is inexpensive in terms of both money (99 cents) and time (43 pages on the Kindle).
The year is 2199; the place, the Reunited States. Kedzie Greer grew up in paradise: a small lakeside community with utopian ideals. But on turning sixteen — the age of legal adulthood in 2199 — Kedzie decides she has had enough of paradise.
Story 1, “The Town With Four Names,” is about Kedzie’s idyllic hometown, which has survived against all odds for more than three hundred years. Cassie Stillwater, a 90-year-old descendent of the original founder, writes down the town’s history, a history that turns personal.
Story 2, “Leaving Home,” is about Kedzie’s decision to seek a life outside the town gates. Although legally an adult, she still is a kid—idealistic and naïve.
