Atoma and the Blockchain Game (Book 1)
15-year-old Atoma always knew she was different...
And that wasn't because she was born in Chicago.
She doesn't realize just how different until, surviving a tragic plane crash in the bone-freezing cold of a mini-ice age, she learns her DNA is banned.
Suddenly, she has no citizenship, and that means no rights.
She is a Zero.
In the year 2050, Earth Inc. controls the planet and there's no sympathy for Zeros who on discovery are sent to slave labor camps on the frozen tundra.
When a mysterious agency intervenes she's offered a choice between a short life in an Alaskan gulag or the chance to survive a possible suicide mission.
She can die sooner rather than later, or she can join a team of Zeros that will be dispatched to an unexpectedly dangerous world. An uprising is needed, but first, there's a mission to get out of the way.
Attaapa, Book II in the Atoma and the Blockchain Game series, is out soon.
