Hello all! I am so excited today because I am doing a cover reveal of M.L. Sparrow’s upcoming novel Ghetto! I recently got acquainted with the author after reading her first novel, The Demon Inside. You can read my review of it here. It was such a fantastic read and I am beyond ecstatic to introduce to you the cover of her next book!
Ghetto is a YA novel set in a futuristic world where technology has advanced to a whole new level. People are split into Classes. Any illness can be cured with a single shot of a miracle medicine called All-Cure and everyone is Branded at birth in an attempt to cut out crime. Ghetto will be released September 15, 2015.
My name’s Sunny Grace Beaumont. Only child, self-taught computer geek and cancer survivor. Oh, and did I mention my dad’s the President? As you can imagine that’s sometimes a little problematic, especially when I want to sneak out. But it never got me into quite as much trouble as the night I ventured into the Ghetto – don’t ask me why I was there in the first place… it was stupid. Everyone knows that the Ghetto is where hardened criminals are sent to live out the remainder of their lives. At first the men that kidnap me are just as I’d imagine, mean and thoughtless, but slowly I begin to have doubts.
I meet a guy. His name’s Sin, he has no Brand – a crime punishable by death – and he’s the rebel leader. I should hate him… but I don’t. Instead he opens my eyes to a whole other side of the Ghetto, where people are innocent of the crimes they’re accused of and helpless children suffer dreadful poverty. Is it possible that I’ve been lied to my entire life… that the governments been deceiving everyone? And how can I challenge the law my own dad is adamant to uphold?
