A novella of the world in 2042. 20,000 words.
In the near future Jackie and her husband Antone are working hard to move out of the bottom class of society. In an earlier time of history his work as a designer and Jackie's work as a professor of history would have made them middle-class. No longer. Like 99% of the population, they're poor.
Then one day while her husband is at work in another city, men in suits come and take Jackie and her children away to be interred in a prison camp in North Texas. No phone calls allowed, no explanations given.
Jackie keeps hope alive that Antone will rescue them. But if he does manage to get them out, where are they going to run, where are they going to hide, and where are they going to go on the PRISON PLANET?
