The future world has been divided into sectors each the same as the other. Surrounded by thick steel fences, there is no way in and no way out. Yet a cyborg army penetrates each sector, picking off its citizens one by one, until no one is left. Behind the sectors’ thick walls, the citizens wait to die. Few will be chosen to survive what’s coming; the rest will be left behind to suffer. A new world has been created, and its rulers are incredibly selective on who will become a citizen. They want only those with important roles in society to help create a more perfect future.

Sixteen-year-old Sia lives in one of the sectors as part of a family that is far too ordinary to be picked to live. According to the digital clock that towers high above her sector, she has only fifteen days to live. Sia has seen the reports and knows a horrific death is in store for her, but she is determined to make the most of her final days. Sia refuses to mourn her short life, instead promising herself that she’ll stay strong, despite being suffocated by her depressed mother and her frightened best friend. Just when Sia feels more alone than ever, she meets Mace, a mysterious boy. There is something that draws Sia to him, despite his dangerousness, and together, they join a group of rebels and embark on an epic journey to destroy the new world and its machines, and to put an end to the slaughter of innocent people.

About the Author:

Kate Ormand, an English writer, recently graduated from university with a BA in fine art painting. In her spare time, Kate loves long walks with her cocker spaniel, Freddy; reading teen novels; and painting her nails. This is her first novel. She lives with her family, her partner, and her dog in Cheshire, United Kingdom.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 9 Up—In a dystopian future, 16-year-old Sia awakes with just fifteen days to live before her sector is destroyed and she is murdered by a cyborg army, along with everyone she knows. After climate change took out most of the living creatures on Earth, the remaining people were rounded up into sectors to keep them safe. Eventually, walls were built around the sectors, and a leader with a desire to create a New World emerged. This New World would be inhabited by only the best people, and everyone else would be destroyed. Sia's sector is dominated by constant reports of the horrors to come via television, and a digital clock with red numbers that counts down the days left to live, so she creates a short, four-item bucket list: swim in the lake, spend time with her parents, kiss a boy, and fall in love. In addition to checking off items on her list, the protagonist also participates in a rebellion against the cyborg army. With a half-baked plan for rebellion, a weak romance, and a countdown clock as a poorly disguised plot device, readers may not get lost in Sia's world. This title does not stand up to others in the genre, but if your teens absolutely can't get enough views of our potential future on this planet, consider making a place for this.—Heather Acerro, Rochester Public Library, MN
