RENASCENCE

Published by WestBow Press
Skye, a teenage girl, knows the mall and drugs and the loyalty of her best friend, Bombsie. Our future, in which she lives, is hedonistic and youth oriented; those who believe in God get a mind-wipe, and old folks can be euthanized at sixty-five. The state is an overpowering presence and BillyBoys—the cops—are a real and constant threat. The concept of family has scant meaning, and the young people know little of morality, living by an us-against-them ethic and believing that pleasure is the sole purpose of life. When Skye is forced to participate in preparations for her grandmother’s euthanasia, she finds herself in the thick of a group of “loonies” and “criminals” that she and her friends have always hated and even physically attacked—Christians. Furiously, she struggles to maintain her selfish existence against the implacable new force of selflessness, which asks of her the unthinkable—the impossible sacrifice.
