What if the world wasn''t like what you were taught to believe?

Would you want to know? Are the consequences of challenging authority worth it if they lead to the truth?

Katherine lives in a "post-apocalyptic community" living in complete isolation. Her town is austere, run by utopians who have created a strict paternalistic order. Knowledge and the search for truth are not permitted. Katherine wants to find out what happened to Serenity, a little girl who has disappeared from the community, but when she breaks out, what she discovers is anything but what she expected. This haunting story about growing up and searching for truth will challenge young readers'' notions about knowledge, the search for truth, and the fight for freedom.

Read from the Book

 

FROM WHAT HAPPENED TO SERENITY:
 
Everything is not as perfect as it seems.
I’ve seen the outside
Through the sky.
 
      I find this scribbled on a piece of paper and hidden inside a metal box in the cornfield, buried only enough to be found later. I’m
looking for my best friend, Anna, who I think might be hiding...I believe what it is saying. It confirms what I’ve suspected for a long
time: there are some problems in the Community. I’m not the only one who knows. What’s on the outside?
