What if the people who thought they were better than you… really were?
Inequality is a science. Giant machines maintain order. All people are not created equal.
Daniela Machado is offered a chance to escape the deprivation of Bronx City through a coveted slot at the elite Tuck School. There, among the highborn of Manhattan, she discovers an unimaginable world of splendor and greed. But her opportunity is part of a darker plan, and Daniela soon learns that those at society’s apex will stop at nothing to keep power for themselves. She may have a chance to change the world, if it doesn’t change her first.
Age of Order is a novel that explores the meaning of merit and inequality. Fans of the Hunger Games, Red Rising, and Divergent will enjoy this world of deception and intrigue, where the downtrodden must fight for a better future.
Age of Order was recently awarded a Kirkus Star (given to the top 2% of all books, indie and traditional).
“There’s no shortage of YA sci-fi yarns that focus on the gap between haves and have-nots. But North’s entry is superlative, and his well-rendered setting is a more interesting conceit than Suzanne Collins’ similar Panem in The Hunger Games… A promising debut that re-energizes tropes in the dystopian sci-fi genre.”
— Kirkus (Starred Review)
About the Author
I’ve been writing since I could grab a pencil (remember those?) Then I had kids. Not much time for writing anymore. Until they started school… in New York City. I’m not from here, and the tumult of that experience inspired me to write AGE OF ORDER. Now I write what I’m feeling, and let the rest flow from there. I hope you enjoy it.
