Julie Farrellabout this book: Safe in the City is a 10,000 word short story, set in a dystopian, post-nuclear future.
Ruby feels like she does belong in Dome City, where boredom is illegal, and love and sex are punishable by public humiliation.
Protected from the ravaged world outside, life inside Dome City revolves around celebrity obsession, hysterical televised public confessions, and quick-fix pleasure. Life is like a video game and a movie combined - everyone is constantly being filmed and broadcast. But after Ruby accidentally stops taking her night-time sleep drugs, she wakes up to the idea that life could offer more than the lies spewed out by the governing Alliance.
When handsome heart-throb Harry Heaven comes knocking on her door one night, he leads Ruby to a brave new world outside the Dome, as well as into a treasure trove of truths inside herself. With Harry at her side, Ruby's adventures take her to the edge of comfort, and out to liberation.
