Secrets come in all shapes and sizes, but this one fits in the palm of your hand.
Tru’s seventeenth birthday is approaching, and she has a decision to make. She can receive a vaccine that will end her creativity. Or, she can help Zared, a boy from her past, expose government secrets—the ones on a SIM card she’s holding. Both choices are risky. Both choices come with consequences. Either way, she has ten days to decide.

Tru can put her faith in Zared—he’s harboring secrets of his own. But life in New Detroit requires more than hope.

Don't miss this gripping first book in the Alliance Chronicles—a suspenseful, post-apocalyptic thriller about Tru Shepard’s fight against a corrupt government.

About the Book

Welcome to the American Republic.

Scientists and technologists run the country. The United States no longer exists. Citizens don’t have the right to liberty and justice. Creativity is illegal. All forms of art, music, books, and film need approval. Execution awaits anyone harboring banned artifacts. Making matters worse, is a government-mandated vaccine that makes some individuals regress. Their minds are no better than a toddler’s.

Meet Tru Shepard. She’s a girl wanting to maintain her creativity. In ten days she’ll turn seventeen. It’s the age the New Order gives the vaccine. Tru must avoid it at all costs. It will rob her of her a creative. Without self-expression, she would rather die.

Meet Zared Aoki. He’ll help Tru avoid the injection. She just needs to help him expose the government.

Failure is not an option for either of them. Tru refuses to live a colorless, dull existence. Zared has to get proof of the New Order’s conspiracy.

10 days.

That’s all the time Tru has.

Lies and secrets make up her world. Is she ready to learn the truth?

Regress, a mature YA novel, is the first story in the Alliance Chronicles. It’s a fast-paced dystopian techno thriller.
