Besides Naturalization

Besides Naturalization is a science fiction novella by Isabel Chloe. It was first published in 2013 and is set in the 23rd Century after many humans have immigrated from earth to populate distant worlds. The story focuses on a ten year old girl as she takes her first steps towards maturity.

In the futuristic world of Hynocripta, robots take care of the day to day needs of everyone. It is Lily’s tenth birthday and she has just reached the age where she will receive her P-ball and pet-rent, both of which will begin to nurture her and help her learn how to express her feelings as she matures to adulthood.

During her daily lessons with the P-ball, she begins to realise that everything in her life is not as happy as she once believed. Her father seems to care more about his work than spending time with her and her feelings towards her abusive grandmother are very mixed.

Feeling deeply troubled, Lily searches for a way to strengthen the bonds with her family as she begins to learn what it means to grow up.
