Sovereignty Emerges as a More Diverse Young Adult Science Fiction Novel
NEW YORK—July 19, 2016—Morgan James’s new release, Sovereignty by Anjenique Hughes, finally views a dystopian, post-apocalyptic future with a male main character that encourages loyalty and persistence for freedom.
Teenagers can often feel overwhelmed in the face of what seems to be impossible odds, with pressures from school, friends, and home life pushing in every direction. High school teacher Anjenique Hughes’ novel teaches youth the importance of perseverance and not giving up when faced with those odds through the eyes of 18-year old Goro, the main character, as perseverance propels him forward even in the midst of immense tragedy.
Sovereignty begins Goro’s story as the first release of a trilogy that will detail his struggles to bring down the world government in a 23rd century totalitarian regime. Through Goro’s struggles to enact his dream of revolution, Hughes highlights core values such as loyalty and bravery which resonate deeply with students as young as middle school.
In today’s world, diverse ethnicities and backgrounds become integrated in every day life for students and adults alike. Sovereignty embraces that reality, presenting a plethora of diverse ethnicities and backgrounds without shying away from the challenges that diversity can hold. With a male lead character, as opposed to recent trends in young adult science fiction novels, Hughes extends the appeal of a dystopian society story to both gender audiences.
While instinct might be to give up in the face of seemingly impossible adversity, this story promotes taking charge of your life and facing obstacles head-on. With witty dialogue and creative 23rd century specific elements, Sovereignty fascinates young teenagers and adults alike as Goro and his friends gain access to the key that will ultimately help them accomplish their goal.
