A Whitewashed Tomb

A Dystopian YA Novel about forgiveness, revenge, and impossible choices.

A Whitewashed Tomb follows the vengeful journey of Tabitha Clay, whose search for her estranged father leads her to a specialized institute for the upper class. While it seems picture-perfect on the outside, the school is run by a headmistress who will stop at nothing to maintain what she calls ‘peace.’ She recruits Tabitha to hunt down her father, who is a wanted felon, promising that if she does her dying mother will be brought back to health. With each sabotage and betrayal Tabitha performs at the headmistress’s request, however, Tabitha begins to wonder if payback is really worth the price.
