So it’s dystopian future. Where church and state are no longer separated. And Roe v. Wade has been overturned and abortion is illegal. And people who are convicted of crimes have their skins dyed a certain shade as punishment. YES. Are you still interested? You should be. The main character is now red-skinned (for murder) after her abortion, trying to rehabilitate back into society looking like a she-devil. It’s a wicked world and feels eerily possible one day. READ IT AND BE LIKE, ‘THIS IS TOTAL SOCIAL COMMENTARY’. I’ll meet you at a Christmas party and we can discuss it over martinis like intellectuals or something.

Selena with election coverage and laws against plan b and all of these anti-abortion laws lately... it feels like it's not too distant of a future.

Jessa I kept wondering whether or not this would be worth the read, but it sounds like from your description it is! I am definitely going to check it out!
