Student Narrative

The book is a metaphor for current events concerning the United States sugar beet industry. The Hershey Candy Company has recently nixed sugar produced from genetically modified sugar beets, in order to sate anxious and misinformed consumers. 54% of domestic sugar is produced from sugar beets so this has been detrimental to American industry. Sugar produced from GMO sugar beets is cheaper, better for the environment, and better for the Country. Please save the dying sugar beet industry.
