Day 6! This book started with a poem and ended up being my first try at nanowrimo. I wrote one chapter every day until it was completed. It has a sequel and a third, and it has my most favorite ending of all my books. Maybe. Well, it is when I first think of it.
Hiding Behind A Mask is about Becca, who lives in a society where they must always wear masks. White masks are the good and black masks are the impure, the criminals, the evil. She is stripped of her white mask and thrown into the world of the Dark Clan, where she is forced to become the face of a rebellion called the Maskless. Meanwhile, there’s an insane man who keeps stalking and threatening her, using her as a puppet. She’s pulled in three directions—can she keep sane under all this strain?
SUMMARY: There is a place full of shame and hatred Where people hide their torn faces They cower behind masks and close themselves off And they're told not to come out no matter the scoff No matter the torment, no matter the pain, Taking off your mask will admit that you're vain. Never take off the mask that hides your deepest truths But what if you did, what would you find beneath the ruins? Someone is following Becca Reed He wants her on the Dark Clan And he says things... Things that don't make sense. Things that are making Becca Reach insanity. But what is insanity In a world full of it?
