California

by Edan Lepucki

This futuristic tale tells of a surviving post-apocalyptic community following devastating natural disasters in California. Frida and Cal are at the heart of this story as they join a community headed by Frida’s brother Micah. Scratch the surface of this Utopian afterlife and a dictatorial leadership is revealed. This eye-opening story gives a chilling premonition of the scarred fallout from a damaged world.

Hilda, Dada and Micah would be a fairy tale to her baby, but for Frida, this world here, the afterlife, was a fairy tale. If she wasn't careful, Frida would be eaten by a witch at the end of her journey.
