But only the luckiest get there.An act of kindness earns Devin an invitation to the home, but it's soon clear that it's no paradise.

This was a good story of a dystopia told from the perspective of children. I was a bit afraid of a Lord of the Flies retell but was pleasantly surprised by the connections and collaboration that are emphasized. Great listen.
