Family is an outlawed concept. Friendships are forbidden. In the world of Wipe Out, all procreation is artificial and government-controlled. Hazel, a factory-born military driver, accepts these rules as necessities for human survival after the Wipe Out. But deep inside, she is haunted by a loneliness she can’t fully understand. Erica Ball, in her Independent Book Review, describes the story as “A hopeful look at what can happen, even in a dystopian future, when someone decides to do the right thing.” She concludes with, “Wipe Out comes highly recommended to readers who enjoy stories that deal with the importance and impact of interpersonal relationships and character-centered dystopian fiction. Because there is not a lot of technical jargon or any out-of-this-world concepts, it would also be an accessible read for general fiction readers. In all, it is a story of one of those rare moments when many factors come together to trigger rapid change. A pivot point. A flashpoint occurs because the right people are in positions to make things happen and—most importantly—choose to do so.
