Nothing is ever what it seems.
Nothing is ever what it seems in this riveting science fiction dystopia about a future society’s frightening overdependence on technology. A mind-bending, powerful debut from award-winning journalist Shari Lopatin.
“WHAT’S KNOWLEDGE WITHOUT CURIOSITY?”
The year is 2150, and bullied nineteen-year-old Flora can no longer ignore the burning curiosity to learn what’s behind the towering Wall surrounding her home state of Apollo. Citizens still read books, discuss philosophy, and send text messages, but questioning The Other Side is forbidden.
When Flora’s naïveté accidentally reveals a dark secret about Apollo, she’s forced into an isolated web of truth, lies, and survival. Fearing for her life, she leaves behind a clue for her childhood friend, Andrew, placing her last hope in their special bond.
“The Apollo Illusion” is a story for the hackers, the techies, the seekers, and the rebels of the world.
