DYSTOPIAN Fiction - Young Adult Book Series

The Union Trilogy

A chillingly gripping dystopian young adult fiction series.

In the near future, when the world’s population has been decimated by disease, the fortunate few live inside the Boundary, while the unlucky ones are
left to die on the Outside. MaryAnn is one of the privileged. It doesn’t matter that her friends can sometimes be cruel or that the boy she likes just threw
up on her shoes, it’s all about being noticed at the right parties.

But it takes a single event to rip her life apart. Struggling with physical and psychological scars, MaryAnn must face up to the truth about the foundations of the Neighbourhood and the legacy of her family. Once she learns the truth she can never go back, but can she really put her faith in the Union?

In this gripping dystopian series, it highlights that in real life good and evil are never clear cut and we all have to decide what it means to ‘do the right thing’.
