Defiance is not an option. In Community 215, forbidding walls keep the Residents contained and obedient to the absolute power of their carefully selected Council. Those within the walls are told where to work and live, who to wed, when to have children, and even how much to eat. The slightest hint of disobedience is punishable by being branded with one’s offense or worse, being declared Outcast, banished beyond the walls to almost certain death. This way of life is the only that Rhea has ever known. While she is an obedient child, she can’t help but glance at the seemingly impenetrable walls and wonder what lies on the other side.
When a boy named Brooks—an Outcast who has never belonged to such a community—manages to climb over, he tells her of a world she can scarcely dream of. Rhea’s obedience is shaken, and she pays dearly for it—branded as “Disobedient,” she will bear proof of her resistance on her throat forever. Having known the sweet taste of freedom and driven by his love for Rhea, Brooks vows to free them from their prison, no matter the cost.
As Brooks battles to free the Residents from the indoctrination camps where they are forced to reside, Rhea must decide between the ideology she has embraced her whole life and a chance at true liberation and love.
Community 215 shines a blinding light on the horrors of absolute power. No matter the circumstances, freedom and love are always worth fighting for.
