The searing, dystopian novel about an underground society struggling to survive after biological weapons have destroyed the world. Years after biological warfare decimates much of the world, humanity survives in underground bunkers. Edwin, a 25-year-old member of the Least Privileged, faces torture and humiliation in one every day - that is, until saving Wayne Meyer earns him a spot among the ruling class. Believing his torment to be payment for his ascension, he gladly transitions. However, assigned to the Guard, he finds himself pitted against a growing rebellion determined to annihilate its masters, forever putting a stop to their cruel ways. Edwin quickly discovers that life on the other side of the compound isn't what it seems. The colony faces eradication while he makes a choice - to live well with a heartless enemy or suffer among his stone-cold peers. As one of the few people who can speak, will Edwin find the courage to discover his voice and give the compound real hope for a better future – before it’s too late? Told in the tradition of George Orwell's 1984, Kass Morgan's The 100, and Kurt Vonnegut's short story "Harrison Bergeron," this stunning, post-apocalyptic story hones in on humanity's center.
