Synopsis: Adelene’s world is one of tranquility, luxury, beauty and youth. Yet beyond the manicured lawns, the ponds and trees, there stand the rigid Walls that lock out the black void of Outer Space. Aboard the vast Inceptum Fidelis, a generational spaceship bound to colonize another planet, there is no poverty, no war, no crime. Some have seen the Earth they left behind, some will see the Faraway World, and others—like sixteen-year-old Adelene—will know neither. They are the honored Middle Generation, sacrificed for the sake of humanity. The journey will last 150 years. Escape is unfathomable, and the mere thought of it, seditious. Erased from all memory sources by the totalitarian regime on the ship, every relic and information from the past is treasured in secrecy. As Adelene emerges out of the perfect childhood crafted for her, the dark secrets lurking behind the ship's seemingly flawless society begin to surface, and curiosity soon plunges her and her group of friends into a series of dangerous events and horrid truths.
About the Author: Juliette Rogasik is a Comparative Literature and Film Studies student at King’s College, London. She was born in Paris and grew up in Manhattan. After having spent 8 months in an American suburban town in her third year of high school, she decided to write a novel that somehow brings up the superficiality of suburbia’s carefully manicured perfection. Underneath, a homogenous consumer society walled in on itself, trapped in the monotonous boredom of conventionality. The novel also touches on humanity's vulnerability, fear of the unknown, constant search for “home,” and our struggle between the comfort of uniformity and the uncertainty of change. Today, Juliette lives between New York and London.
