    Thanks for your feedback!

    Good dystopian scenario with a nice twist!

    Imagine a world in which there is a rigidly controlled caste system, where one must apply for marriage which may be approved to into a lower or higher caste depending upon your social indiscretions, your intelligence or simply where the government needs workers. Imagine that art is non-existent, that one can be imprisoned simply for being ‘different’, that racial differences are ironed out by controlled manipulating marriages and strictly controlling births. Imagine that no one is allowed to see, read, or know anything the government does not approve; that is, anything that is not part of their prescribed program for ‘your’ wellbeing. Now, imagine Bristol…a non-entity in this ‘perfect’ world. Bristol is a person without an identity; an “unregistered”, meaning that his birth was illegal so he must live completely outside the prescribed social order. However, Bristol has a talent for art and his graphiti art inspires secret admirers. Now, enters Jude…a boy framed by the police for Bristol’s artwork and sent to prison. He is a boy who never loses faith despite the abuse. A boy the prison warden plans to kill to effect population control in the prison. Then, then is Samara, Jude’s prison teacher who sees his abuse and the fallacies of her boss, the warden. Samara, inspired by Bristol’s art begins to question society and her place within it. Denver, Bristol’s sister, never considers disobedience and is fearful Bristol will be caught and executed. She is assigned to a loveless marriage; a marriage with a fateful twist. This handful of characters come together in an unexpected way that rocks their world, shows them there is more than they’ve been told and gives them hope for the future. The Unregistered is much more than I hoped for when I began reading it. I found myself engrossed and really empathetic to the characters. This is a fascinating read with potentially serious social implications and a couple of major twists that keeps readers guessing. It should be enjoyed by those who enjoy dystopia and anyone who is into reading about strange overbearing social systems.
