Juliette Rogasikabout this book: The Walls of Flemington is the coming of age story of Adelene Harlow, a 16-year-old girl whose entire world has been crafted to perfection. Born from adventurous parents hoping for a better future for their children, she has lived all her life aboard the Inceptum Fidelis, a luxurious spaceship bound on a 150-year journey to colonize another planet. She has never seen the Earth, and will never see the ship's destination. She will live a life of permanent luxury and peace, secured within the gigantic Walls of the ship. Under the constant control of the Authorities, there is no uprising, no questioning, no disturbance. Regard for the past is unnecessary. Any thought of escape is unfathomable and seditious. But when curiosity hurls Adelene and her group of friends into a dangerous series of events and horrid truths, she is forced to abandon everything she had been brought up to believe, and defy the forces that have kept her walled into the silence of conformity and ignorance.
This is a novel about society, about our fear of change and easy resignation into the limiting clutches of convention and homogeneity. It's about breaking through the walls we've created around ourselves in a world of individualistic aspiration and alienating technology slowly taking control of our lives.
