Product description

Sixty years after a virus wiped out all men, life is pretty good. Well: unless you’re the only boy… Welcome to the Matriarchy. It’s way better than the dead-and-gone patriarchy. There are no wars, for a start. The planet is protected. All kinds of exploitation have been banned. In fact, things are pretty much just as you would imagine a world run by women might be. Life is fairly amazing – if you’re a girl. It’s not so great if you’re a boy, but River wouldn’t know that. Until she met Mason, she thought they were extinct.
