Consider the dystopia: a world where polite society has vanished, where you have to fend for yourself against impossible tyranny, where you have all the responsibilities of being an adult but almost none of the privileges. Sound familiar? Teenagers don’t see dystopias as dystopias; they see them as barely fictional representations of their day-to-day lives… Why do teenagers like dystopias? Simple. They’re looking for proof that there’s a way to survive the one in which they are already living.
