Annotation

Whether the story describes a eutopia or a dystopia is left up to the reader. The I. O. E. (International Organ Exchange) is symbolic of a society that sees everyone connected to everyone else. When you sign up for the I. O.E., you agree to give an organ when requested, and the protagonist is struggling over whether she should have a lung removed. If she doesn’t, she will be expelled from the I. O. E. and ineligible for a future transplant.
