My name is Evelyn, and I’ve just been sold to pay off my father’s debt … and to them nonetheless.
I thought I’d be going to college after the summer. I thought my family was normal.
But, apparently it isn’t.
I’ve just found out my father’s gambled away all our savings, and now the men he owes money to want him to pay.
Moreover, I’ve just discovered who he owes money to.
The Devils Mafia.
Notorious monsters, the stories told about them are never spoken above a whisper. They have the cops in their pockets, not to mention the judges and any other high-ranking official around.
When all is said and done, they are the law.
So, when I overhear them and get caught eavesdropping … they decide to make my parents an offer.
My life in exchange for theirs.
I can’t believe my ears when my father agrees, and suddenly life as I know it is turned upside down.
