Then her only remaining friend, the only one they haven't found yet, hands her a letter that changes everything. Forgotten feelings begin to surface, and Naheli remembers what it is like to cry, to laugh. To love. But her time is running out, and with the Sacrifice only days away, she sets out to solve the mystery of the letter -- and discovers that most of her life has been a lie, and there may be some things worth living for.

About the Author
In a perfect world, her day would have 48 hours of which she could spend 24 sleeping and then still have another 24 hours left for her family, for writing, reading, friends, lesson plans, pointlessly staring at the wall, carefully selected TV shows, and of course chocolate.
She lives with her wife, her step-daughter, a cat, and two rabbits in Berlin, Germany.

This is an intriguing tale in a unique setting. Scholz does a great job building the world and providing visuals that make it very easy to step into the story and feel like you're there. I won't detail the plot line because I think that wrecks it for the next reader (no point in buying the book when reviewers tell you what it's all about, right?). But I will tell you there are plenty of twists and turns and this story kept me engaged enough to read it all in one sitting. I'm one who likes happy endings, which this story had a sad ending, but the way Sholz orchestrated the plot I finished it feeling satisfied instead of depressed. That takes talent, IMO. I also enjoyed the metaphors and analogies woven throughout that provided ample opportunities to contemplate the underlying messages. This story leaves you with something to think about. Two thumbs up!
