MY ENTRY FOR THE 2014 HOT KEY BOOKS COMPETITION BASED ON REBELLION.
"I gazed at him, entranced by his beauty, not one of make up and perfect skin, of gleaming hair and a fresh suit, much like what was expected inside the walls, but of rugged and hard and rough and calloused, much like the street I was standing on."
A land that was once united and together is now torn apart by the rivalry and uprising between the people and the government. A young girl- the daughter of a politician, tells her story of how she was contained within walls that were said to protect her but just may have kept her from seeing who the real enemy was. As she ventures past the wall in secret, she is faced with beauty, happiness, and love- nothing of what she was told lay there, and a man who seems to make her heart stop with just one look.
