Interesting title, but the summary is too vague for me to really know what the story is about, which may deter readers. I’d suggest adding at least a little bit of background info about your characters and their world and what distinguishes this story from others.
Six Feet Under
The future always has to suffer the consequences of the past. That’s just the way the world works.
Reese knows this. Her life was ruined by the mistakes of people past. By numbers they thought were small, insignificant, trivial things. Four degrees Celsius was all it took to raise the water levels six feet. six feet was all it took to send her home, and her entire life, to the bottom of the ocean.
Now, she is forced to evacuate to the City-State of Russfall, whose inhabitants are unwilling to take in refugees, whose limits cannot contain all of the survivors for an extended amount of time, and whose governmental system is on the verge of collapse.
Reese was lucky to survive, she is quite aware of this fact. Some of the people she saw every day were gone because of The Flood. But she can’t help but feel that’d she’d rather be under the waves as well.
