Imagine a world where your looks depend on "being good" and adhering to social norms and morality. That is the premise of Sarah Tarkoff's new Young Adult book series Eye of the Beholder. The book's young heroine is part of a future where all countries in the world are governed by a new religion. A future where not following the doctrine and the morality of the religion has physical implications. Could there really be a higher being so powerful or are there other powers at play? Join the Fleet Science Center, author Sarah Tarkoff and scientists, as they discuss the story, the science and the social science behind the Eye of the Beholder Trilogy.
