In the very near future, the country is plunged into drought and unrest. Scare resources and constant heat are making life completely miserable. Casey doesnt think she can stand slugging back another gel pack or working one more shift at the wells. Fortunately, theres a solution: anyone over the age of seventeen can sign the Forever Contract and enter a utopian paradise. While peoples minds take a permanent vacation, their bodies get warehoused and hooked up to a complex array of sensors and feeding tubes. As Caseys brother says, "You upload your consciousness to the system and youre free to live as long as you want, however you want. No more pain, no more heat, no more awful dust, no more work. Just pure thought. Its what our species has always been meant for. Suffering is for philosophers. Not for me."Caseys ready to sign--a permanent vacation is just what she needs. Theres only one problem: her boyfriend James doesnt trust it.Told from his and her perspectives, The Forever Contract is a 17,000 word (60 page) novella suitable for readers in grade 8 and above.Would you sign the contract?
