May In The Wastelands | ✓
[Editing] May is an 18-year-old with scoliosis in a future where technology is banned and seasons no longer exist. Soldiers--part of the ruling upper class rumored to have been created in labs--arrive at her remote farming village to kidnap the lower class citizens for use in labor camps in the capital city of Asmara. May, small from the curve in her spine, manages to evade capture by hiding in a drainage pipe.
In her search for help, she encounters Raphael, an upper class leader of rebel houses. He needs May. She's the only one small enough to navigate the underground pipes that link Asmara with the rebel houses.
May becomes a critical player in the efforts to overthrow the monarchy, but everything changes when her engineer friend, Joel, uncovers secrets about the world--and about the upper class--that leads May to the Wastelands. This is a whirlwind story of trust and emotional strength in a world of brutal oppression.
