T H E  S E R P A  is a collar that counts down each spoken word. The limit is 1000. Reach zero, and you die. Remain silent, and you live.
  T R O Y  is a simulation carried out by the government of Cura each year. Those that survive it have their serpas removed at the Solstice, a celebration aired across the state. 
  E N Y O  has an ailing grandmother and a mother awaiting trial in prison. Her word count is dangerously low for a seventeen-year-old, and although she's never wanted it, this is the year she applies for Troy. She tells herself it's for the sake of her family, but as she enters the simulation, her priorities are dangerously warped.
  A R E S  lives in Enyo's memories of the distant past. His presence in Troy is a mystery, but Enyo is determined to find out who he really is, even if it means sacrificing her real life back at home. He hides a secret about her own family, and uncovering it might save her before it's too late.

I can edit for you :) I've kinda been wanting to become an editor- and people do call me the grammar police. xD
If this was real no one would ask me why I don't talk much. XD
It's been a while since I've heard of Fahrenheit 451. I actually read it in middle school and I enjoyed the book
