Thesis (UNI Access Only)
“Evercross” is the first six chapters of a creative piece that will eventually be a novel. It falls in the young adult fiction genre and features a dystopian world. This piece follows in the footsteps of the novels that came before it by adhering to the tropes and themes that are commonly found in this type of novel, but also tells a unique story all its own. Some (but not all) of those tropes and themes include a love story set in a dystopian society, a world believed to be a utopia but in reality, is a dystopia, and a teenager finding herself in a world that she doesn’t feel like she belongs in.
Haven, the protagonist, has had her life uprooted following a ritual ceremony that lets sixteen-year-olds discover their place in society. With the help from an unexpected source, Haven starts to unearth the truth about the foundations of the society she was supposed to run and finds out everything is not what it seems.
