The Auction (Paperback)
America 2272 - Women are dominated by the government Office of Reproductive Oversight.
In North's stinging dystopia, women must give birth to their babies and then surrender them to "The Auction". The wealthy bid on the healthiest babies and the poor take out predatory government loans to afford the sickest.
"Four women use their skills, along with the help of sympathetic men, to hatch a plan to set things right. Readers will toggle between rage and hope as they immerse themselves in North's meticulous worldbuilding that exposes the hypocrisy and illogic of brutal government policies, stifling bureaucracy, and government censorship. North crafts a memorable and emotional thrill ride through an unnerving society with intelligent and inspirational characters who strive to create their own destiny." Booklife Review
