In the near future (somewhere within the 21st century), a genefix is designed capable of halting aging. Simultaneously praised and condemned, people rush to be among the first to test it. But the treatment can go to market a group of extremists blow up the facility in which it is being tested. The only survivor is Peter, a twelve year old child whose parents wanted him to forever remain their beloved little boy.
The story follows humanity's expansion throughout the solar system, focusing one crucial future-historical moments which Peter invariably finds himself getting mixed up in. Essentially, he is Forrest Gump IN SPACE!!!
Two questions: Are there any flaws in the concept so far, and do any of you have advice for me as to how to implement this idea in the actual writing?
