Debut YA Release: Rite of Rejection by Sarah Negovetich

Happy Release Day to Sarah Negovetich!!

Sarah is one of those authors I actually KNOW!
She lives in my hometown and we met through the local writing group. 
Since then, she's mentored and advised and edited me.
(Yes, she's one of my editors!)

And now she has finally released her own book, Rite of Rejection.

This is a dystopian Young Adult novel about Rebecca, who is a naive 16 yo on the cusp of becoming an adult. But she has to grow up much sooner than she expected when she's labeled as a criminal and sent to the Pit. There she learns that she must find herself to determine her own way in the world.

Rite of Rejection by Sarah Negovetich

"Before you stands the future."

Straight-laced, sixteen-year-old Rebecca can't wait for her Acceptance. A fancy ball, eligible bachelors, and her debut as an official member of society. Instead, the Machine rejects Rebecca. Labeled as a future criminal, she's shipped off to a life sentence in a lawless penal colony.

A life behind barbed-wire fences with the world's most dangerous people terrifies Rebecca. She reluctantly joins a band of misfit teens in a risky escape plan, complete with an accidental fiancé she's almost certain she can learn to love.

But freedom comes with a price. To escape a doomed future and prove her innocence, Rebecca must embrace the criminal within.

Sarah Negovetich knows you don't know how to pronounce her name and she's okay with that.

Her first love is Young Adult novels, because at seventeen the world is your oyster. Only oysters are slimy and more than a little salty; it's accurate if not exactly motivational. We should come up with a better cliché.

Sarah divides her time between writing YA books that her husband won't read and working with amazing authors as an agent at Corvisiero Literary Agency. Her life's goal is to be only a mildly embarrassing mom when her kids hit their teens.
