After a long run of bad luck, Sandra finally finds herself working with a flock of sheep and a coworker studying chaos theory. While this may not seem to make sense at first, Sandra finds that there are endless similarities between the sheep and the trend mentality of people.

'Bellwether' is a bright, witty story about the general idiocy of consumers. It is easy to relate to both Sandra's amusement and frustration with her coworkers antics. A light and enjoyable read.
