Summary

Imagine a world where....

Everything you ate was monitored by the government.

Every step you took was counted.

Your children were weighed every day at school.

Neighbours reported on neighbours and no one was safe from judgement.

Sugar was illegal, and baking was a crime.

Imagine if that world was here.... What would you do?

Toe the line or fight for your freedom....

A gripping story

As I don't have a sweet tooth, I didn't expect to enjoy this book very much, but I found it hard to stop listening. It's not just about sugar!

The author has taken some real life trends, such as the ability to monitor people's purchases and activity level, and taken them to an extreme. She's created a world where there's intense pressure to conform, both from the community and the government. Although this world is a disturbing one it is light hearted and addictive rather than troubling to read.

It is a timely reminder of the importance of voting and the power of conscientious rebellion.
