A Quiet Little Town
A Quiet Little Town
A lighthearted science fiction story that could happen to you
About the Book
“You can think of your life as just a practice run. A chance to try life out before you go for real. And you can practice as much as you need until you’re ready to go for real.” What if it was true? How would you live your life differently?
A science fiction story set in the not too distant future about growing up, problem solving and taking risks. Based on actual incidents, cutting edge technologies and medical research with a slight stretch of the imagination. A fast-paced easy to read story, not to be taken too serious. But you might want to slow down and reflect on the issues raised related to where our world may be headed.
