A life for a life. No one need die until someone new is born. Then you've no choice. This novella will take the reader to a dystopian future -- a world of adults where birthmothers are a privileged class and every child is a celebrity. Death has been conquered, but overcrowding has led to government enforced zero population growth. When Janice learns she is pregnant without authorization, she must find a life donor or forfeit her own. For every child born, someone must die. The math is simple, but the politics behind it are complicated, and Janice soon finds herself diving into a deep conspiracy. For those who love "The Handmaid's Tale," this is another take on what the future may hold.
