National borders have been eliminated in favor of centenals, geographical groupings of every 100,000 citizens who vote every ten years. The corporate party Heritage holds the majority, but the system may be upended by idealistic Policy1st--or warmongering Liberty, a party playing on old nationalist tensions. I have never been so fascinated by the innards of a fictional election. Complex and compelling.

Flora 717 is a sanitation worker, one of the lowliest bees in a hive where work is paramount and worship of the Queen the only religion. But Flora is not like other bees. Her self-knowledge and curiosity make her a threat to the ways of her kin...but she may also be their only hope during a season that threatens the hive's very survival. Laline Paull delivers a totally weird and brilliantly imaginative chronicle based on observations of actual bees.
