Dystopia which has a required “19th Year of Service” seen through the eyes of various young people who are suppressed by their parents, their schools, and the social order in which they live. This part of the novel reads like a realistic novel which then shifts to the youth rebellion and the rest of the novel focuses on the rebellion, the people involved in it, their relations and conflicts, and the organizations they establish including urban and rural communities.
