The third book for this spooky month I wanna show y’all is called “Sameness.” It’s not a horror, so no scariness here! I came up with this book in sociology class because something the professor said made me angry. But isn’t that how all my books are written? But anyway...
“Sameness” is placed in a dystopian world where everyone is knocked down and raised up so that everyone is the same. Link and summary below.
This is one of my all-time favorites. I love the ending and the characters and I loved writing it on Wattpad. It took me two years to get around to writing it, and it was worth it.
SUMMARY: SAMENESS, WHAT WE STRIVED FOR SO LONG TO ACHIEVE. BUT WHAT IF YOU'RE DESTINED TO BE DIFFERENT? Nine months of Hibernation, three months of being awake--that's how the year goes for us. Half of us wake up tired and sore while all of us wake up smelling of either lotion or bleach. But during the nine month period of hibernation, I woke up. And now I know why I always wake up sore and reeking of bleach.
Humans have always strived for equality, for everyone to be treated equal. We finally reached the point of this harmony, this level of sameness--and everyone is happy. Many, many generations later. But what happens when, in a wold of people knocked down and stood up to be exactly alike, a person wants to be different? What if they're destined to be unique in a world of strict equality?
