BabyWorld

by Jonathan Martin Dixit

In 2067, the murder of a five-year-old girl leads a young lawyer to the despicable truth behind the creation of a race of chemically adulterated children.

In the 1960s, politicians called children our most precious natural resource. Since the 80s, children have become commodities of the advertising industry. Do you ever wonder what role children will play in future society?

BabyWorld is a crime mystery, soft sci-fi novel that explores the psychological dysfunction occurring in families suffering from suppressed trauma. With its taboo-breaking subject matter stylistically tempered into a near-future fairy tale, this coming-of-age story is written for a mature, literary audience.

Toronto, September 2067. Ten percent of babies born are SMARTED; physically, emotionally and sexually they grow at normal rates, but cognitively they develop so fast that by six years old they graduate university and enter the heavily-taxed workforce, thus supporting Canada’s high standard of livingâ??the highest in an otherwise polluted, politically volatile and over-populated worldâ?¦

Sinika Reichman is a nine-and-a-half-year-old lawyer having problems determining whether she is a child or an adult. When the case of a raped and murdered, non-smarted, five-year-old girl is outsourced to her firm, Sinika is put in charge of the prosecution. Partnered with twenty-five-year-old Nathan Towers, the office wunderkind, who is non-smarted and hates those who are, Sinika’s augmented abilities are put to the test as she skilfully dismisses one suspect after another. Her unregulated emotions become strained, however, as she encounters events she can’t handle and concepts she can’t process.

Only by venturing out to Adult Island (old Centre Island), where children are not allowed, does she, aided by her recluse of a grandfather, Jonathan the Second, and her spirit-like great-grandfather, Jonathan the First, discover the true culprit, expose the core secrets about her neo-Dickensian society, and reveal the source of her own anxieties and her family’s dysfunction.
