The sequel to Agenda 21 "I knew those men were our enemies, but they, like everyone else in the Republic, were nothing more than servants. Rule followers. They had no choice. But I did. I had a choice and I made it. I knew then and there that, no matter what happened, I would never go back. Never. "It was once named America, but now it is just "the Republic. "Following the worldwide implementation of a UN-led program called Agenda 21, the once-proud people of America have become obedient residents who live in barren, brutal Compounds and serve the autocratic, merciless Authorities. Citizens mainly keep their heads down and their mouths shut--but Emmeline is different. When the Authorities took her mother away, she started questioning the world around her. What happened to her mom? Why is everyone confined to grim living spaces and made to eat the same food cubes every day? Why was her own baby taken from her to be raised in the Children's Village? And are the rumors that somewhere out beyond the fence live those who got away during the Relocations--the so-called shadow people--really true? When Emmeline's questions lead to the realization that she will never see her child again, she decides to escape the Compound with her partner, David, and their baby, Elsa. Fleeing the armed enforcers of the Earth Protection Agency, and facing the unknown for the first time in their lives, Emmeline and David run into the shadows in the desperate hope of finding something they'd only heard stories about from those who'd lived before the Relocations: freedom.

Are you worried that I have feelings for him? Gratitude that’s all I feel. He was kind to me and gentle. And he and father risked their lives to get me out of the Compound. But it’s you I love. And I love you of my own free will. (pg 176, Emmeline.)

Julia promised herself that if she ever got back there she’d tell them. I’ll whisper it to one or two people, she thought, they’ll whisper it to others, and it will ripple out. Ripple out like water itself. But someone might report her. Risky business whispering the truth. (pg 141, Julia)

I knew these men were our enemies, but they, like everyone else in the Republic, were nothing more than servants. Rule followers. They were cruel, but they didn’t know any better. (pg 31, Emmeline)
