Want to know more about this young adult book? Here is a brief synopsis:

In 2064, The Nine are preparing to assemble. This board of individuals is President Madame LaFonte’s solution to an ailing nation in search of medical care. While it seemed ideal at first, the folks of the borough are quickly discovering it isn’t quite what it seems. The lucky ones are issued a red gown and another chance at life. That’s the happy ending. However, not everyone gets a red gown. The others have to make their own second chance at life–if they’ve got the heart to do what it takes. When the superstitions of the swamplands run just as deep as the mud, every little bit of luck helps. They named her Vitalia, a name that means life. But her name was the only advantage that she had. In need of a heart transplant, Vita leaves Peacock Swamp behind to stand before The Nine. With her family by her side, they run into the dangers that government healthcare has created: an underground medical clinic that services the rejected citizens…for a price. Her whole life has been a struggle. Why should her death be any different?

So who is the chick who wrote this book?
Katie Femia is a freelance writer and coupon freak herself. She began writing children’s books and young adult novels several years ago after leaving her job as an elementary school teacher. She loves being a Hoosier, her family, sushi, and chasing her dreams no matter how wild and wacky they get.
