Prologue

The year is 2024. The United States of America is a Nation Reborn. Unemployment rates are at 1%. Crime has reached an all time low ironically because of one exception. Thanks to the recently adopted Twenty Eighth Amendment to the Constitution, Americans have the right to an Annual Purge, meaning one day every year, for twelve hours, all crime is legal (including murder, robbery, rape and vandalism).

Some people look at Purge as if it's Christmas morning. It's a night where all hell breaks loose and no one can do anything about it. Other people are scared out of their minds, locking themselves in their homes to avoid all violence (as if that's possible).

I never would have thought of doing this 5 years ago, but it all changed when I was betrayed. My name is Laine Johnson and this is my Purge night.

gracenelson730: It was very fun to read. I have no other comments

B.Noble: Awesome concept and commentary on modern commercialism and it’s dark side, really well executed. The main character’s dialogue feels a little stilted a times, and his reactions occasionally seem a little melodramatic, but other than that a great read.
