INTRO – Today’s most popular young adult novels … think “Divergent” or “the Hunger Games” … set their stories in a dystopian future. A Beaufort author however sets her attempt at young adult fiction in a near-utopian village in the not-too-distant past. George Olsen has more.

You could make the argument that the lead female characters in popular young adult novels “Divergent” and “The Hunger Games” share a trait with Grace, the lead female character in Susan Schmidt’s “Song of Moving Water.”
