BEAUTY COMES AT A PRICE. AND GIRLS MUST PAY.
In Belle and Joni’s world there are two options for girls:
One, follow the rules of the Doctrine like Belle: apply your Mask, work hard to be crowned at the Ceremony, be a Pretty.
Or two, fight the rules like Joni: leave your face bare, work hard to escape to the Education, be an Objectionable.
But maybe there is a third option…
Change the rules. Reclaim your power. If you can…
What would you choose?
Warning – this novel deals with issues that some readers may find upsetting, including references to pornography and sexual assault.
