In the future there is no disease. There is no war. There is no discontent. All citizens are complacent members of the Global Governance. But one summer is about to change everything.

Keeva Tee just turned fifteen. All of her dreams are about to come true. She's about to make the trip to Monarch Camp to be imprinted with her intended life partner. One day they'll have perfect kids and a perfect life. But in her happy, carefree life in the Ocean Community, something weighs on her mind. She hears whispers about anomalies citizens who can't be imprinted. No one knows what happens to them, but they never seem to come back.

When Keeva arrives at Monarch Camp, her worst nightmare becomes a reality she is an anomaly. After imprinting, the people she loves change, and she starts to doubt everything she's ever believed. What if freedom and individuality have been sacrificed for security? And what if the man who solves all the problems is the very man who's created them and what if he isn't a man at all?

When Keeva finds a warning carved under a bunk bed she begins to understand: nonconformity will be punished, dissent is not an option, insurgents will be destroyed.

Why do you think it’s important for people to make decisions that aren’t the “norm”?

There are a lot of characters in Anomalies who make decisions that “aren’t the norm”. Our characters challenge authority, to create change in the world. In Anomalies, Sobek is a dictator whose law is not meant to be questioned. The citizens follow him blindly and don’t realize they’re being taken advantage of. Keeva discovers that the rebels collectively have more power than Sobek’s Global Governance if they work together to challenge the decisions which are considered the “norm”. Great art, great music, great science…practically everything which is truly great is because people don’t settle with the conventional choices. Lin-Manuel Miranda made a decision to create a hip hop musical in Hamilton, which is changing the face of theatre. Emma Goldman challenged gender politics. Nikola Tesla, Malala, Gandhi, Rosa Parks, The list is long and impressive. Keeva and her team believe that actions speak louder than words and challenge decisions to affect change.
