White Like Ashes
My first dystopian YA novel! Can I get a woot-woot? White Like Ashes is half in planning stages, half in rough draft stages. I'm a multi-tasker, apparently.
After an encounter with a mugger ends with the mugger choosing to run into the night without actually mugging her, 17-year-old Evan Gorecki starts making sense of the letters she received from her father before he died in an asylum. More oddities follow, such as criminals turning themselves in and Evan's mother 180-ing from a disappointed workaholic to an accepting, cookie-baking Stepford mom. Her father's gibberish uncovers a warning as everyone around her falls farther and farther away from themselves, but who can Evan trust when she's not even sure who can trust her?
