"Are you disappointed in life? Tired of living? Do you want to ensure your loved ones are well cared for after you pass away? As Clinical Director of The Ultima Centre, I can guarantee that your privacy, every personal consideration, and the transfer of your life will be sensitively managed if you allow us to purchase it. We pay top-dollar to your designated beneficiary immediately when you sign one of our LifeTrans contracts."
-Ultima Center, digital billboard advertisement
By the year 2025, medicine and technology have advanced at such a rapid speed that it is now possible not only to grow and harvest organs for human transplantation but to transfer a human life itself from one body to another. A pilot program called "The Conversion" is now in place and is looking for five willing participants-
For Alina Bruhler, who just turned 18, this offer is too tempting to resist. Having struggled her entire life, she is at a crossroads and is ready to sell her life to ensure the financial security of her beloved younger brother, Micah.

In order to transfer her life to another human being, Alina must go through a thirty-day preparation process, consisting of the virtual re-experience of some of her most horrific memories. But an accidentally discovered loophole alters the course of Alina's life. New people enter her life and memories, and she falls in love for the first time. Can she get her life back and be together with the one she loves?

Personally, this one is my favorite. The best love story I've ever created.
Struggled with my own demons, working on this story helped me see the light and good in people.
