The screen of the computer tablet resting in front of me switched from a picture of the Earth to blue before a white message appeared across it. ‘History of Earth Lesson complete. Enjoy your evening Utopian.’
Rubbing my eyes, I blinked a few times before looking around the school hall. All five hundred students who’d been sitting inside the massive room stretched and moaned as the silence turned into a loud murmur of voices and shuffling feet.

Picking up my seat and tablet table, I added them to the growing pile at the side of the building with the rest of the students. Pain shot through my shoulder as Jessica, a younger student with long brown hair, was pushed into my side.
“Sorry,” she said, shrinking away from me.
“It’s fine,” I replied, watching as she added her own chair to the pile.
