How many years had I hated my father because I thought he had betrayed us, betrayed me? His paranoia, words, and teachings all a symptom of his mental illness; a mental illness he never had. They had controlled my suspicions the same way, by using the fear that I would wind up like my father if I didn’t keep it contained, hidden, buried deep inside me – the truth. The truth I had always known.
My Dad may not have been able to save himself. He may not have been able to save Marathon, NY or all the areas the parents that attended Kadrin’s ceremony had come from, but he was going to save all the rest of the lives, as he saved mine. My heart had been dead for so long. Now it was alive and beating strong. Cat! His legacy, to finish what he’d begun!
I turned the computer off, then backtracked through the woods. I tossed the computer into the Fountain. Sighing, I threw my phone in after the computer and returned to the Hole to come up with a name for my new baby brother. A child without a birth certificate or a social security number. A child that, to the government, didn’t exist. What they didn’t know could hurt them. I’d make sure of it!
Intelligent Design will be FREE Memorial Weekend Fri May 27 through Mon May 30th, 2016.
Award-winning author, Frank Scozzari says, “INTELLIGENT DESIGN is a fantastic addition to the Modules Book series, bringing fruition to all the characters and leaving you wanting more. Intelligent prose, assembled into succinct chapters, drive a story-line that often had me saying to myself, ‘I didn’t-see-that-coming.’ The dystopian world described in the book is one of the most unique I’ve encountered in literature. It is original and thought provoking. Almondie Shampine’s elegant writing style has a poetic quality to it. It takes you in deeply and holds you there, and when you’re finally released, you feel as though you have been changed. As a reader, it’s what I want from a book—to be so moved and changed. Although this is third in a series, I would say it is a stand-alone novel. One of the better YA Dystopian books I’ve read in recent years.”
