Overview
2016 Christy Award Winner (Young Adult category)
2016 Christy Award Finalist (First novel category)

Like all citizens since the Ruining, Carrington Hale knows the importance of this day. But she never expected the moment she'd spent a lifetime preparing for--her Choosing ceremony--to end in disaster. Ripped from her family, she'll spend her days serving as a Lint, the lowest level of society. She knows it's her duty to follow the true way of the Authority.

But as Carrington begins this nightmare, rumors of rebellion rattle her beliefs. Though the whispers contradict everything she's been told, they resonate deep within.

Then Carrington is offered an unprecedented chance at the life she's always dreamed of, yet she can't shake the feeling that it may be an illusion. With a killer targeting Lints and corruption threatening the highest levels of the Authority, Carrington must uncover the truth before it destroys her.

The debut novel from the daughter of thriller/fantasy novelist Ted Dekker introduces a 23rd-century dystopia run according to a patchwork of holy writs from the past known as Veritas. In this society, young women are chosen for marriage in the titular ritual. When Carrington is not chosen, her fate is to join the “Lints,” who do hard labor for the rest of their lives. When a key leader of the Authority, as the ruling class is known, loses his wife, he decides to take Carrington as a second one. In the meantime, Carrington learns of sinister deeds done by the Authority. She must decide between the “choosing” she’s always wanted and the truth she is coming to see—the possibility of alternatives outside Authority walls. The strong female heroine will appeal to teen readers, and adults and teens alike may also enjoy the themes of corruption and religion, absolute human power, and government as god. A seer figure named Aaron says pointedly, “The real illusion is that you are not free.” Despite flaws, Dekker’s debut is worth choosing. Agent: Esther Fedorkevich, the Fedd Agency. (May)
