The Johnson Project, by Maggie Spence
In 2017 every woman on the planet is barren. No more babies. No more human race unless someone can cure the virus and jump start the population.

Renowned fertility specialist, Ted Johnson, comes up with a cure but he’s not so sure he wants to go back to the old reproductive ways. His family initiates The Johnson Project in order to weed out potentially bad parents so that all future children are born to loving and prepared mommies and daddies. Interested applicants have to qualify and prove they are fit to raise a child. The project practically guarantees a brighter future for everyone, except, of course, those who don’t make the cut....
                     
Pork, by RS Anthony
"Ready?" Sandy asked.
Steven's heart hammered in his chest. He turned to her and placed his hands on her shoulders, a solemn look on his face. "Look, if something gets me in there, I want you to run and save yourself. Don't tell anyone. If you don't see me at school tomorrow, then you should alert people in town, okay?"
"Steven, you're making me scared."
"Just do as I say. Promise?"
Sandy's own palms started sweating as she tightened her grip around her inhaler. "Promise."
"Good. Now let's go."


High school is torture for Steven Walthurst, and home isn’t a whole lot better. The only place that offers respite is an abandoned tree house at the edge of town. But something lurks in the nea...
