magi-11 year old dystopian resident

My sister recently found an unfinished young-adult mecha scifi in our parents’ house. She insists it isn’t her writing, so it’s probably mine, but I don’t remember it. Maybe I do?

Vegetables: they aren’t what they used to be. They’ve gotten a lot bigger, or at least that’s the impression I got from making this recipe. I only had large onions. Those come standard in the grocery stores now. It’s difficult to find a medium…
