“In a world in which baby girls are no longer born naturally, women are bred in schools, trained in the arts of pleasing men until they are ready for the outside world. At graduation, the most highly rated girls become “companions”, permitted to live with their husbands and breed sons until they are no longer useful.”
Frieda and Isabel have been best friends their entire lives.
Considered the most physically perfect students at the School, and now sixteen and in their final year, they both expected to be selected as “companions.” Spouses that will marry the most wealthy and powerful men.
The alternative, to spend their lives as “concubines” or “chastities” isn’t even a possibility for them.
But as the final year starts to wrap up, the pressure to remain perfect becomes a burden too heavy to bear. Isabel starts to self-destruct. Confused by Isabel’s actions, Freida decides the only thing left is to fight for her future, even if that means betraying the one true friend she’s ever known.
