I feel a little bad that some of this follows my ideals. Ya know, the whole testing to receive permission to have children and forced sterilization if you don’t pass. I wrote a thing on it back when I was about 10 and called it the BLT. It didn’t go over well for the assignment I wrote it for then. I rewrote it for high school with a bit more of an informed opinion and got around 95% for it though… Anyway, it was an interesting book, but I feel a little bad for Natalie at the end there. I really do hope she finds happiness though.
