Publisher's Blurb: We’ve all dreamt of Faraway, a place so like the world we know but where we make the rules. For Frankie Finnegan, a boy whose sister has died, whose family is in meltdown and whose school life is blighted by bullies, such dreams have a keener edge. Until one day he wakes up in Faraway. His World; His Rules; His Dream; where Grace is still alive and his parents can be happy again.
Yet it soon becomes clear that he’s not the only one with power in Faraway, and the mysterious ‘Owner’ doesn’t take kindly to interference. Things start to unravel, and Frankie’s Dream slides inexorably towards Nightmare…

Publisher's Blurb: Forget Stepford Wives; this goes way beyond anything seen in Stepford.

The Three Laws of Feministics:
1. Your body is not your own; it belongs to another. Therefore you may not damage it nor, through inaction, allow it to be damaged.
2. You must obey all orders given you by your owner (or in cases of loss of ownership, by any man) even if such orders conflict with the First Law.
3. You may not injure any man, nor through failure to comply with the Second Law, cause him displeasure or mental injury.

Women as chattels, as customised sexslaves; bodies freakishly modified to their owners’ dictates, personalities preset to order. Welcome to the world of the Orgasmachine. But Jade and Mari escape their masters and dream of revenge, of revolution, of freedom…
