277 –the number sewn into Simone’s shirt. The number that dictates her life at the protection camp. Regulated by a system of ringing bells, fortified cars, and rations, the survivors are protected from residual contaminates on the other side of the wall.
Breaking the monotony of the highly structured camp, Simone and her friend skip school to enjoy one of the last nice days of fall. An afternoon game leads them to a new part of the forest, uncovering more than they expected. All thoughts of protection and rules are shattered by the appearance of the ivory tower. A tower riddled with a history of danger and death.
When her friend shows up with a bruised face and thinly veiled threats, Simone has to decide how much she is willing to risk to find out the truth of the tower.
"It's very rich and Simone was a sympathetic character. The atmosphere and descriptions are where Pulioff really shines; she manages to get across a lurking magic in a world with very harsh tones. Her cinematic voice would work well for a short film adaptation of this story. Don'e be surprised if it shows up on my 2013 Top Ten." - Michelle Browne, Goodreads
"This is a classic rendering of curiosity kills the cat set in a dystopian society rebuilding from a massive disaster. Everyone at the camp has been told the Ivory Tower is evil and must stay clear of its influence. Simone, being an orphan and deemed the lowest on the human ladder of society disobeys. What does she discover in the tower that could change everything. Read this wonderful short story to find out.
A FIVE STAR fantasy suitable for the whole family" -Simon O'kill Goodreads
"Felt like reading an episode of twilight zone" - Terry Stein
