About this submission

The narrative is set fifteen years in the future when jobs are harder to find conveniently located to your family and schools often shut down because of under-funding. Many of the issues we see in our world today are amplified. In this world, it’s normal for parents to commute hours into the city to not only work, but to buy any groceries or resources they need at high costs. The state of the world leaves the two main characters, Ryland (14) and Aiden (8) alone to fend for themselves, and daydream about a better life.
