Out of the Womb
by Kim Antieau
Carey lives on the generation spaceship Mercury with her parents and thousands of other space travelers. Her parents are Colonists who believe they have a right to leave the ship and colonize a habitable planet. The Counselors, who make the laws and govern the ship, refuse to let anyone go. Negotiations break down between the two sides. Soon violence erupts, and Carey’s life is changed forever.
