by C.E. Wagner
In the near future when we have just begun to pull ourselves out of the Fall, a monetary collapse due to climate change and economic disparities, the United States turns to its youth.
After a century dominated by greed and competitiveness, the country must recreate a sustainable economy in the face of a changing climate. Against this backdrop, the federal government has begun to use the Selective Service to recruit candidates to rebuild. In exchange for two years, the cadets get free college tuition – something only the rich can currently afford.
Nora is forced to apply by her Gran in hopes of bettering her future. Wesley, a good Agrarian Universalist, choses to go for altruistic reasons. He truly believes and wants to change the world. Full of anger and frustration, Nora immediately butts head with Wesley, who is innocent and full of good will. Wesley learns just how difficult life is for some, and Nora learns just how full of hope the future can be. Together, they find the resources in themselves are the best tools to repurpose their changing society.
