I am writing a book.
And I wanted to tell you guys what it’s about.
Just to see if anyone would read it if I ever got it published.
So here we go:
In a later United States, a bunch of teenagers are discovered to have Elemental powers (Control over water, fire, air, earth). The government decides to put all the ‘normals’ in camps, which basically turn into small towns surrounded by walls to protect them until the Elementals are controlled, which basically means, when they are all dead or in prison.
Now we follow our characters Brooke, Aster, Conner and Erika. Now Brooke and Erika have been living in one of these camps since it all started, so for about 3 years. Now Aster and Conner have been living on the streets, and Brooke knows them as they used to be best friends back before everything. Then, Aster and Conner end up at the camp, and it turns out they know where this thing the Normals call the scroll, and it’s supposed to be the solution to all the country’s problems. So the four of them escape the camp, and have to dodge soldiers and everything else to try and find the scroll so that they can maybe turn this whole mess back to normal.
There are twists and turns, danger, friendship, romance, and all the good stuff.
Let me know if you would read this!! It’s also planned to be trilogy, so I really would like to know if anyone would read it xD.
Something that pissed me off is how in English classes we were taught about utopias and dystopias and the utopias were defined as seemingly perfect worlds that ended up being flawed. And the story always..stopped there? Like, never was the plot about taking that not-quite-perfect world and continuing to improve it. Starting now I want a new category:
amphitopia: all the perfect happy beginning of a utopia. All the yay we are fixing the world ending of a dystopia. One wild twist in the middle.
