I was a troubled teen and I was constantly looking for someone to throw me a rope. Those ropes are connections. They allow us to see that life exists beyond the little worlds we are currently a part of.

Finishing books - and leaving the world you've created - is always a kind of emotionally wrenching experience. I usually cry.
I think dystopian futures are also a reflection of current fears.
