In the future, the planet is a utopia. With no crime or disease, and out-of-control population growth, the answer is using Scythes, a group who “glean” citizens at random. 16-yr-old Citra and Rowan are chosen by a Scythe named Faraday to train as apprentices; neither wants this lifetime position. Powerful, thought-provoking and riveting! Teen— From Kids and Teen Books
Two teens must learn the "art of killing" in this Printz Honor-winning book, the first in a chilling new series from Neal Shusterman, author of the New York Times bestselling Unwind dystology. A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery: humanity has conquered all those things, and has even conquered death. Now Scythes are the only ones who can end life--and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control. Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe--a role that neither wants. These teens must master the "art" of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own. Scythe is the first novel of a thrilling new series by National Book Award-winning author Neal Shusterman in which Citra and Rowan learn that a perfect world comes only with a heavy price.
