Author Sara Celi has stopped by today with a teaser for The Undesirable Blog Tour!
I lied. “I got lost. That’s it.” Then I tossed him my brightest fake grin, hoping to distract him. Fast.
“Getting lost happens to a lot of folks these days. Lots of them.” He sounded suspicious. “So what are you really doing here?”
“Really. I just got lost.” Then I remembered something. Something important. “Wait. Don’t you all patrol together?” I looked around after I asked him and didn’t see anyone else from the Homeland Guard.
He scooted a little closer to me. “Not tonight. It’s just me.”
An acrid scent wafted over me, and I wrinkled my nose in disgust. “What’s that smell? Ugh.”
Fostino sniffed the sleeve of his uniform and grimaced. “Fire.” He cleared his throat. “We burned some of the electronics we collected today in a big bonfire behind the school.”
My eyes bulged and I gaped at him for a few seconds. “Should you have told me that?”
Fostino brushed some of his hair out of his eyes. “Probably not, but it’s not like the fire wasn’t obvious. Just one more thing we have to do to win The War.”

What if everything you knew turned out to be a lie?
Charlotte Walker knows how to live under the rule of The Party. She has managed for 18 years. She helps out her drunken mother and keeps life going at a familiar, steady pace. She doesn’t ask questions, even though she has many of them in her heart.
Fostino Sanchez knows how to live under the rule of The Party, too. For 19 years, he’s worked to be the perfect Party member. He knows what must be done to keep Maxwell Cooper in power, and how find the The Undesirables that threaten to take away everything that matters.
As the months go by, what matters most to Fostino is Charlotte Walker.
While their love blooms, danger comes to Charlotte and Fostino’s small hometown of Harrison Corners, OH. Threats they never knew existed could take away all that they care about. And just when these two teens think they know what will come next, Charlotte learns the truth about a secret she has long suspected.
What Charlotte finds out changes everything.
THE UNDESIRABLE is Charlotte Walker’s story, from her point of view. It is a thrilling, suspenseful tale of love, curiosity, adversity, and maturity against the backdrop of a futuristic war.
Should Charlotte trust Fostino with what she knows? Can she trust anyone? Will she find it in herself to rise up against terrible odds? What if the ultimate Undesirable is her?
