The year is 4010. Nuclear war and the wasteful nature of humans have all but destroyed the United States. A new government regime rules the day with strict laws, rationed food, and careful control.

Most nineteen year-old girls are thinking about college, stretching the wings of newfound adulthood, and boys. Well, I’ll probably never go to college and all my dreams of the future are gone. I’ve been adult for much longer than I should have been and my girlhood was stolen the minute the North Koreans dropped their nukes over the United States.

All I ever wanted was to be a normal girl. I had dreams of joining the ranks of the Military Police and making my family proud.

I am now half-human, half-machine, part of the never-ending freak show that is the Restoration Project.
