“Biosphere 3″ by Lily Lee, age 13

at first glance

Things are never what they seem. Even the brightest paradise can hold a dark secret. Here’s an excerpt from “Biosphere 3″ by Lily Lee, which was published in our 2014 book “At First Glance”.

“Imagine a really big dollhouse, shaped like a dome, with 150 little children living in it. All they ever do is eat, sleep, and play—you know, the typical lives of people who live in a perfect, first-world wonderland. Except, of course, that the children are dolls and their owners are the ones who pull the strings.”
