For those classified as morbidly obese, it has always been their body, choice, and life. If others don't like it, that is their business—except it is their business now. Sadly, times have changed for those who appear unable to care for themselves and deemed to be a drain on the system. Growing pressure to galvanize the population for the harsh conditions of a new world has led to changes in laws. Those who cannot reduce their bulk to the government-ordained targets are imprisoned in life centers where they must remain until they are deemed healthy again. Naturally this decision prompts outrage and furious debate about freedom and life choices. Feeders, normally labeled as caring enablers, are now classified as abusers and treated as criminals. As the brave stand up to outrageous new laws on behalf of their partners, they must go underground or on the run to evade the law. But will they find a way around all their obstacles? In this science fiction novel, death and loss surround a changed world as its inhabitants battle a principle worth fighting for amid hunger, illness, guilt, past demons, and a heatwave.
