Autobiography of a Traitor and a Half-Savage by Alix E. Harrow
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Historical, mildly fantasy, this short story is nonetheless heartbreaking and evocative of the whole Company Town mentality. More than anything, it is the drive to live and survive despite being under the power of so many other forces beyond your control that makes this such an emotional tale.
Let's just tack on a decade of forced labor because you're not doing your job. Shame on you for not putting the needs of US over YOU.
Of course, this is absolutely about being marginalized, so beware or forwarned. It could happen to us all.
