* 2017 WATTY WINNER!*
  
   Humans are at the top of the food chain and always have been. But what if they weren't? What if another took our place and decided to raise and exploit us as we have every other animal on earth? Welcome to a world after humanity...
                    
  No one is exactly certain where the sibla came from. Some say they evolved from humans long ago, slowly taking power as their numbers increased. Taller, stronger, and longer-lived, than homo sapiens it isn't too hard to imagine. Now humans must face a reality in which they are no more than animals, domesticated beasts bred for their master's various needs and hungers.
                    
                    Rachel Turner is only eight years old. Born in Demin, one of the last remaining free human settlements on earth, she has never been forced to face the reality of life under a sibla Master, living a carefree existence in her hidden village.
                    
                    Magnus Kendrick is a sibla farmer with a sizable estate on which he raises all manner of livestock, from chickens, to sheep, to...humans. He is also the man destined to purchase Rachel's life.

So excited for you. I haven't read this yet, mostly due to being too busy. But @IanRCooper recommended this book personally. Figured I'd give it a read.
I should NOT be reading this at 2am in the pitch black. Oh well
Eaten by what, I must ask? 🤔 
                              
                              I'm so excited to read this! Congratulations on your Wattys win! I can already tell that it was a sincere privilege to have my story included in the same group as yours. This is a true masterpiece of fiction.
i have to say being vegetarian is not much better as the way they process all the fruit and vegetables with all the chemicals is not good that is why im trying to go organic :/

Absolutely adoring this book so far! The author has a delight for writing, I suppose.
                              
                              This is also pretty useful for our English topic this term, which is Animal Rights. This is a very analytical story and can be applied to our own lives.
Probably not the story I should be reading at school. I'm going to anyway
