The Designate by J. B. Cantwell

USA 2095 Everything that could go wrong, went wrong. Sea level increase? Fifty feet. Weather? Hurricanes and crippling drought. Government? Don’t even get me started. I don’t think that people a hundred years ago would have believed the way things are now. I’m just Riley, a girl stuck in what’s left of Brooklyn, trying to find my way out. My best friend, Alex, says I shouldn’t join the Service, but I don’t see any other way. I’ve had enough; enough of my mom, enough of this poverty, enough of this hunger. They say that only one in five survives the full four-year term. Only one in five gets the money on the other side. I can’t stay here, so there’s only one choice, really. It’s going to be me.
