Though the America Liam Cyning lives in is quite similar to the America of half a century or more ago, it is also fundamentally different. Ten clearly defined classes are the underpinning of American Society, determined by the educational system. As a newly assigned member of the Leader class, Liam is still uncertain what his role and responsibilities are.
Meredith Sauvage, a childhood friend and nemesis has been assigned to the Advisor class and is hired as Liam’s personal assistant. Her job is to guide and mentor the young man while navigating the tricky waters of a personal relationship and the conflicts of a class society.
This story is a Bildungsroman, a literary genre that focuses on the psychological and moral growth of Liam Cyning from youth to adulthood. With his grandmother as an example and Meredith by his side, Liam earns a place at the table as he exposes the fundamental weaknesses of the very system that made him who he is.
