Blanca has everything she ever wanted, a hot boyfriend named Seth and the
loving support of her foster father, Cal. She’s finally escaped the abusive
control of her birth father, Barbelo Nemo, and her tortured childhood at Tabula
Rasa School.
But the scars of Blanca’s Vestal upbringing run deep, especially when the
FBI start asking questions. Blanca feels abandoned by Seth who is hunting for
Lilith, Blanca’s only blood relative. The Defectos, a support group of
Vestal-Rejects, offer Blanca comfort instead.
While the Vestal order crumbles, Chinese rivals called the Guardians rise
to power and wrest control of important Tabula Rasa contacts. Now Blanca’s life
is in peril once more, and this time, Blanca struggles to recognize friend from
foe.

Eighteen-year-old Blanca has lived a sheltered life. Her entire childhood
has been spent at Tabula Rasa School where she’s been protected from the
Internet. 

Blanca has never been online and doesn’t even know how to text. Her lack of a
virtual footprint makes her extremely valuable, and upon graduation, Blanca and
those like her are sold to the highest bidders.

Blanca is purchased by Cal McNeal, who uses her to achieve personal gain. But
the McNeals are soon horrified by just how obedient and non-defiant Blanca is.
All those mind-numbing years locked away from society have made her mind almost
impenetrable. 

By the time Blanca is ready to think for herself, she is trapped. Her only
chance of escape is to go online. 




Excerpt
 
I look to where he points, and the flash of thumb-cameras blinds me. Vestals
must never have their pictures taken by random people. That privilege belongs
to the companies that purchase them and market a Vestal’s privacy one
advertisement at a time. I reach my arms out by instinct, to protect my face
from the public. “I’m fine with it,” I lie, pulling my hands down. “But we
better leave now or we’ll be late to the restaurant.”
 
“My dad can wait a few minutes.” Seth scoops me in his arms.
 
“Blanca!” one of the spectators calls. “And Veritas Rex! Is that really
you?”
 
Seth holds up his hand and wiggles his finger-chips. “The one and only!”
Then he dips me back for a kiss.
 
I stiffen like cardboard. “Stop it,” I mumble, trying not to squirm. All
I can think about is the cameras, my face flashed worldwide and weirdoes
slobbering over my private moment with Seth. 
 
“We’ve got to go or we’ll be late.”
 
Seth kisses my nose. “I didn’t know you were so punctual.”
 
“Yes.” I pull myself out of his grasp. “Cal’s waiting.” The sooner I put
my helmet on and get back on my motorcycle, the better.
 
“Blanca,” a man calls as we ride away. “I love you! I’ve watched you all
year!”

 

 

 
Underneath my jacket, I shiver. The fame that surrounds me is chilling.
