Inside the Wall
Senior year is hard enough with assessment exams and a harpy teacher.
Now seventeen-year-old Alysse is face with a seismic bomb and guerrillas, while uncovering a genocidal plot that could spark a war.
As Alysse chooses what to believe and who to trust, she and her friend Pete ask questions everyone else avoids--probably because they are afraid of the answers.
And they should be . . .
"(Desert) is a futuristic picture of a society segregated by stations of wealth and privilege will make you think. In many ways (Alysse's) world is chillingly familiar." --Peter H
About the Author
A poster. A dream. A news clip. Those are the things that started Desert.
Angela spotted the first--a poster--inside a teen section of a local library. It showcased an attractive guy and girl with superhuman strength and powers, standing together, ready to defeat the bad guys, a cold, calloused look in their eyes.
Believing evil can be defeated without becoming cold-hearted, A Tebbs decided to create a kind-hearted heroine more like today's youth. She wanted readers to finish the book feeling inspired and motivated to win in life.
Driven, A Tebbs worked early mornings and stayed up late nights, squeezing writing into her hectic schedule. Then in 2015, after three years of working, she received a scathing peer review. Rather than give up, she scrapped the old Desert and started all over, writing for another two years before Desert became what we enjoy today.
