Imagine the future of 2049 and the government has just decreed that, in 30 days, all children from the ages of six months to 18 years will be removed to group homes.  And as a mother you are already a subversive -- having falsified the death of one of your children at birth to avoid the child being "eliminated."

NOW ALSO ON WATTPAD:  Sci fi  dystopian story THE UPHEAVAL -- the prequel to THE MOTHER SIEGE -- when 20 years earlier in 2029 the protagonist in THE MOTHER SIEGE is 16 years old and her world changes in a moment.  See

Well written overall. I would not have used the "puke". As a narrator, I'd use something more formal, or use "Show Don't Tell" and describe his white sweaty face and eyes that seemed to betray his attempts to stop himself retching etc etc. Great start. beautiful cover too.

Shared & tweeted, Phyllis. Hope your back pain clears up. I find I'm limited in "sitting time" myself.
