Eight ordinary people. One extraordinary choice. It seems like any other day. You wake up, pour a cup of coffee, and head out. But today, when you open your front door, waiting for you is a small wooden box. This box holds the answer to the exact number of years you will live. From suburban doorsteps to desert tents, every person on every continent receives the same box. In an instant, the world is thrust into a collective frenzy. The Measure charts the dawn of this new world through characters whose decisions and fates interweave with one another: best friends whose dreams are entwined, pen pals finding refuge, a doctor who cannot save himself, and a politician whose box becomes the powder keg that ultimately changes everything.

This book can be bought on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. You can also purchase the book directly through your favorite independent bookstore (check for curbside pickup options) or purchase online at Bookshop.org, an online bookshop that financially supports independent bookshops locally and nationwide. It can also be borrowed from the Chicago Public Library.
