Days of Dreams by Aiden E. Messer
Every five years, twenty young adults are selected to participate in the Days of Dreams, an event celebrating Nile Corp. and the Company-Nation. If they survive, they will be rewarded with a place in the wonderful city of Tomorrow, and their families will be safe from need, but the fewer the survivors, the greater the reward.
Tam wants to protect Alfie, their boyfriend, at all costs.
Akira wants a better life for her family.
Oliver wants to make the world a fairer place.
Lisa wants to be free to choose her destiny.
Jacob just wants to survive.
Their lives are now linked, whether they like it or not. Will they help each other, isolate themselves, or kill each other? What will motivate their choices?
