What's worse is learning she's the next target on their kill list.
She knows to survive, she has to remove the one thing that gives her substance, security and transport, the one thing the Alliance relies on to track each Citizen of One United.
Once removed, she must run to save her life - with a boy she barely knows, a boy who holds her future and heart in his hands.
Now Brynn and T are truly on their own ... against the power of One United.
A Note From the Author:
inDIVISIBLE began as a disturbing dream in which the government had taken control of our lives on even the most basic level. As I saw the story unfold, it was almost as if the government spoke within my head, directing me in every aspect of life, invading my personal thoughts and dreams. Honestly, it freaked me out a bit.
I like my freedom. I like to do things spur of the moment, and living under this type of order and scrutiny was a horrifying and yet somehow realistic idea. As the idea and the feelings of loss consumed me, I began writing the story of Brynn and her realization that her freedom had been stolen without ever realizing it consciously.
Since writing the book I've had many people ask me how I did the research to write it. I didn't. That's just it. I didn't research. I left the story up to my heart. Of course, the little things I've noticed in my life and the lives of my children fed into the story to contribute to an invasive future where no one is safe to pursue their own creativity, own thought process and own identity.
Probably the biggest contributor to this element of the novel is an experience I had with my daughters at a local public school when I questioned the principal about special programs for my girls who were bored and wanted a challenge. She stated, "Children at E-- Elementary are not allowed to excel." Yes, that's a direct quote. We pulled our children out of that school that day and they never returned.
The introduction of tablets at my girls' new school fed into the story along with news reports I saw of principals spying on their students and schools instituting palm-scanning before children can eat lunch at school.
I know I'm not alone in the belief that we are not machines. We are not property of any government entity. And yet, if we don't stand up for what we believe, what then?
I guess deep down, inDIVISIBLE is my answer to that question.
