They

They

told me I should be here


They

whispered about dream jobs that pay well


They

chanted, “You’ll get what you deserve!”


They

shouted from the rooftops. “You’ll reap what you sow!”

But we live where pornstars and strippers make thousands, and I owe twice as much to pretty institutions that whispered sweet nothings into my ear.


But we live in a world of debt that grows by the second, and the institutions continue to promise and whisper, and we hope and hope that the institutions will pay us back because we held up our end of the bargain!


Don’t worry, though.


The

THEY

is slowly dying, and soon it will be

US

WE

OUR,

not

mine

me

I.

April Dawn: Minor grammar flaws take away from this fast paced novel. That being said, dare I say this novel is just as good as divergent?! (Personal Opinion) Some conclusions are left for the reader to decide which I enjoy. Twisty plot points & unexpected turns kept me fully hooked. I fit every page I could...

jenneyescoto: I'm only six chapters in, yet I'm already hooked. It didn't start too slow nor too fast. It has just enough background information to keep the plot going in a decent pace. There are just some minor grammar mistakes and phrasing that could be easily corrected. Other than that, I'm really enjoying ...
