By Charlotte Agell '81
In fifteen-year-old Adrian Havoc's world, Homestate rules every aspect of society: identity cards need to be carried at all times, evolution is a forbidden topic of discussion, and religious education is enforced in daily 'rapture' doses. If life weren't hard enough, now come the threats that the end of the world -- SHIFT -- is quickly approaching. But Adrian refuses to accept things as they are. He sets out for the toxic Deadlands on a trip that may very well alter the course of the universe.
In this thought-provoking, powerful, and by turns humorous novel, Charlotte Agell uncovers the painful consequences of war and uncertain governments in an imagined -- yet disturbingly realistic -- world.
