Annotation

Young adult novel set in the city of Lucille, which had become a eutopia by, as they believed, eliminating all the “monsters,” such as politicians, businesspeople, lawyers, and religious leaders, who had exploited the people. The story is told from the point-of-view of a young girl who discovers that at least one monster remains. Much fantasy.
