Annotation

The novel begins in what is the current dystopia for many couples, spiraling debt, landlords who constantly raise the rent, too many credit cards, all at their limit, loans, and illegality to stay afloat that can’t be paid. The Transition offers a way to avoid jail, get out of debt, and start over. It offers a mentorship in which the couple lives with a Transition couple for six months, supposedly learning how to live differently. It turns out to be just a different dystopia leading to more complete control.
