Young Adult Fantasy
There are no secrets in Saintstone.
From the second you're born, every achievement, every
failing, every significant moment are all immortalized on
your skin. There are honorable marks that let people know
you're trustworthy. And shameful tattoos that announce
you as a traitor.
After her father dies, Leora finds solace in the fact
that his skin tells a wonderful story. That is, until she
glimpses a mark on the back of his neck . . . the symbol
of the worst crime a person can commit in Saintstone.
Leora knows it has to be a mistake, but before she can do
anything about it, the horrifying secret gets out,
jeopardizing her father's legacy . . . and Leora's life.
In her startlingly prescient debut, Alice Broadway shines
a light on the dangerous lengths we go to make our world
feel orderly--even when the truth refuses to stay within
the lines. This rich, lyrical fantasy with echoes of
Orwell is unlike anything you've ever read, a tale
guaranteed to get under your skin . . .
