Genesis, by Bernard Beckett

genesisSummary:  Anax, a dedicated student historian, lives far in the future—the distant past events of the 21st century are taught in classrooms. The world of that era, was ravaged by plague.  Only the island Republic remained stable and ordered, but at the cost of personal freedom. Anax, hoping her scholarly achievements will gain her entrance to the Academy,  has extensively studied Adam Forde, a brilliant and rebellious citizen of the Republic who fought for human dignity. To join the Academy’s ranks, Anax undergoes a test and as the examination progresses, it becomes clear that there may be more to Adam—and the Academy—than she had imagined.
