I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book. --Groucho Marx

From Goodread:


            In A World Where Everyone Kills For Money
Two People May Die For Love.

            Cassilia Abernathy is a brilliant but nerdy twenty-one year old girl living a tortured existence. Following the untimely death of her mother ten years ago, she’s been little more than a slave to her stepfather Roger, and his three daughters, Trina, Ramona, and Annalise. Although Cassilia serves them dutifully, they treat her like trash, all the while keeping a life-changing secret from her…

            Cody Rath is a falling star. A football player with aspirations to play professionally, his career stalled when he defeated the state’s top school. Now, the only way he can regain his status and a shot at his dreams is to essentially throw the next game against the favored opponents.

            In this modern, adult-oriented retelling of the Cinderella story, two young adults will take on a villainous, corrupt society, one that only exists to sustain itself and cares little for those who are injured or killed. They will fight for their future, and each other, in this coming-of-age tale.
