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 to 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?
Celi does an excellent job of introducing us into this strange new world. Charlotte is a strong, independent protagonist that you root for from page 1. The Undesirable is an easy read, and the pacing and action make it just fly by. I thought the author did a good job of world building and helping the reader understand the progression that American society went through to get to the way things are at the time of the story. The story captured my interest from the beginning, and held it throughout. I really enjoyed watching Charlotte become confident in herself and make some really difficult decisions as challenge after challenge was placed before her. She is smart and strong, and I enjoyed experiencing the story through her point of view.
