The declaration by Gemma Malley

I have just finished reading a fantastic trilogy by Gemma Malley

Imagine that there is now a drug that can renew cells, cure disease and illness.  With Longevity, death is now a thing of the past.

What happens to the world’s population and resources?
What happens to society when there is no renewal, no young people?
Can Nature be denied?

Gemma explores these themes and what it is to be a Surplus, an illegal child who has no right to life.

Anna has lived in a Surplus House since the Catchers caught her at age 2.  She has been taught that she has to earn the right to the air she breathes, the food she eats, the space she takes up.

Can mankind survive?
