A new story idea I’ve been toying with. Opinions, thoughts, questions- all welcome.
A group of a thousand families are selected for an experiment. With human populations exploding, and resources to support them dwindling, a group of scientists are making an attempt to reduce the human impact by reducing the human size. To three inches tall.
After two experimental phases, the project is given the green light, and the families are selected through a lottery program. Jax Drews is the teenage son of Aaron Drews, the leader of the military/police branch of selectees.
With a lust for exploration, and a knack for getting into trouble, Jax discovers what could be a huge potential threat to the entire community. What’s worse, is the threat has also discovered him. The race is on for Jax to get back to the community, warn his people, and help mount a defense against the threat- before everyone in the community dies.
