A Look Inside the Story Idea for BOUGHT

A Look Inside the Story Idea for BOUGHT

A Look Inside the Story Idea for BOUGHT - My YA Dystopian Thriller Series (Plus an Excerpt!) When the idea for BOUGHT, my latest young adult dystopian thriller, came to me last summer, I was torn.

Maybe someday I'll go back to writing Emme and Gabe's story, but for now, I'm charging forward.
