Audience: 6th Grade - 8th Grade
Anna is an obedient 14-year-old 'surplus' living at Grange Hall with other children that were not 'legal'. England in 2140 has rules, lots of them, and the one that made Anna a 'surplus' has her doubting everything she has known and been taught when Peter arrives. He calls her by a last name she does not know, tells her that her parents love her, and that he has come to help her escape and take her home. The adults are determined to 'break' Peter as his behavior is inappropriate for a surplus, so much so that he is placed in solitary. When Anna sneaks in to visit Peter she overhears the plan to eliminate him the next day. What can Anna do to save Peter and will they be able to escape?
