At sixteen, Ellie Boudreaux has it all—clothes galore, every electronic one could dream of, and enough money to buy a small country if she wanted to. Except that she doesn’t, having long ago paid a colossal price for entering the world of the rich and the powerful. Living in a hell where she is forced into sexual submission in trade for her family’s wealth, Ellie is only fueled by one thing—her countdown to freedom. Graduation. It is the only thing that keeps her from shutting down. Now in her junior year, she’s grown to hate the powerful and despise the opposite sex. Nevertheless, she continues on with her farce of being Ellie the Popular—that is until Daniel Jennings comes into her life, knocking her not-so-perfect world even more off kilter, and effectively ripping her little façade to shreds. As she begins exploring the sweetest, most abnormally normal thing, she is shocked to find that her heart is not all black. Ellie soon learns that happiness also comes with a price. And when the life of a teenager collides with the life of a sex puppet in the most unexpected way, reality comes crashing back down. Now with another load far larger than she can carry, she can only hope that the weight of it all doesn’t crush her this time.Biographie de l'auteur :
Devora Goree, born Ashley Lasha Gardner in the small town of Monroe, Louisiana was raised in Houston, Texas and is a freelance writer now living in southeast Georgia with her husband and four children. Having found a love for writing at the age of ten, she knew it was something that she wanted to pursue life-long, and has since written songs for numerous musicians, various works for non-profit organizations, and has done developmental editing for aspiring authors. Goree attended Northwestern State University at the age of sixteen with an interest in psychology and then later journalism. Having nixed the idea of ever writing a book of any sort at a young age, it wasn’t until Goree turned eighteen that she actually decided to work toward writing her first fiction manuscript. Three manuscripts and a four-year hiatus later, she flirted with the idea of writing again, numerous characters dancing around in her head. Inspired beyond reason, she was certain that this story was one that must be told, and penned out her debut, I Am Raven. She is currently working on her fifth novel, the sequel in the Black Dove Trilogy, Black Dove.
