Life's going to be easy...said no one ever.
Especially for a PlayStation-loving twelve-year-old in a futuristic city.
Being twelve matters. Because that's when I am packed off by the Council on a hardcore, muscle-numbing strugglethon across the five Thinais – the treacherous hills, fatiguing fields, muddy mangroves, dry desert lands and dense forests – to come out shining…or whining. The latter is more my style.
It's me against Nature. Me versus wild animals. Me against who-knows-what-lurks. Me versus Me. Get the picture?
How this will help me grow up and glow up all in one go, I don't know. But I'm about to find out.
So are you!

She is also the self-published author of four visionary novels and an avid blogger with several blog posts to her credit.
