On his sixteenth birthday, Alex Barret reaches a turning-point in his life when, like all kids his age, he’s scheduled for a medical procedure called ‘Appraisal’. Meant to extend life, Appraisal is unpredictable, and in rare cases, like for Alex’s dad, can actually shorten it. Everything else in Alex’s world costs, but for some reason Appraisal is free for all, even the desperately poor, like him.
Having heard of every possible Appraisal scenario over the years, on the day of his treatment, Alex knows what to expect.
So how is it possible that his outcome is ‘none of the above’? Now he’s on the run from a ruthless army led by the most powerful man in the world, and his only hope is to track down his long-lost uncle – who’s supposed to be dead.

Jay Allan Storey has traveled the world, passing through many places in the news today, including Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and the Swat valley in Pakistan. He has worked at an amazing variety of jobs, from cab driver to land surveyor to accordion salesman to software developer.
Jay is the author of four novels, and a number of short stories. A new novel is in the works for 2018. His stories always skirt close to the edge of believability (but hopefully never cross over). He is attracted to characters who are able to break out of their stereotypes and transform themselves.
He loves both reading and writing, both listening to and playing music, and working with animals. He’s crazy for any activity relating to the water, including swimming, surfing, wind-surfing, sailing, snorkeling, and scuba diving.
Jay is married and lives in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
