I’m asking if this book is also part of the brainwashing, so we’re getting used to the idea that everything is going to be poor, everything is going to be illegal, and that the showers we take can only be 90 seconds? I’m trying to figure out how to deal with this propaganda/brainwashing that is happening in our society so I’m just asking if your book had anything to do with it

I’m not entirely sure what you mean by “the brainwashing” though I am intrigued by this question. With the Birthright series, I wanted to explore why certain goods become illegal or legal at various points in history, and how government policy can subtly (and not so subtly) impact people’s lives. These are ideas I also touched upon in my adult novel The Hole We’re In. You can find more about my reasons for writing All These Things I’ve Done here
