BOOK #1 [A Watty Finalist & Newly Edited Version]
  On the verge of turning seventeen, Irissa Maclin fears what she must do if chosen for surrogacy away from her home in a small desert region outside of the capitol, Arid. Girls of her age - upon random selection - will be taken to a lab far into the Mojave Desert to help harbor Seraphim - genetically perfect embryos.
  Soon after meeting an annoyingly good looking draftee from another region, Irissa is taken from her familiar, low-key life. She doesn't think she will ever again be able to feel the way he managed to make her feel. But when  their chance meeting ends abruptly by a militia of Borrowers, she is arrested for publicly disobeying Arid Law.
  Torn between mixed-up feelings toward a boy from school who is enlisted as Borrower, the very thing she will grow to hate, and a draftee with a contagious smile, she must choose to either obey or defy her duties in society.
  Secrets, betrayals, and love pave the path for Irissa. Will she choose her own fate, or succumb to the science that promises a brighter future?

It's scary to think that's only 4 years away. I mean I'm going to be 16 so if this borrower thing were to come true. I might have to become a surrogate. Which is scary to think about. Someone could change the whole world by making one stupid mistake.😁 I'm freaking myself out now

Baby making girls. Prologue gives you an idea of how the story will go. Great job.
