Everything you ate was monitored by the government.
Every step you took was counted.

Sugar was illegal, and baking was a crime.
Imagine if that world was here... What would you do?
Toe the line or fight for your freedom...

“A good read but certainly not amazing”
A solid idea for a book but not the best in terms of execution. I just found it rather clunky but I did appreciate the twist at the end.
