Atlanta High School Senior Pens Competition for The Hunger Games
She may be seventeen years old, practice archery, and look eerily similar to Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games, but Olivia Lodise brings a whole new futuristic tale of teenage rebellion to the scene with her debut novel, Violet Path.
As a Senior in High School, Lodise has already accomplished more than some people will in a lifetime. This gifted high school senior speaks fluent French and is almost fluent in Mandarin. She’s a world traveler. She plays three musical instruments and practices archery. Ms. Lodise, an extraordinarily talented writer, will soon add “published author” to her already impressive and ever-growing list of accomplishments.
Violet Path, Ms. Lodise’s soon-to-be released debut novel, is the result of nearly five years of hard work and dedication. What started as a seventh-grade English assignment has culminated in a page-turning sci-fi thriller that is sure to keep both teenage and adult readers on their toes.
Set in the futuristic and war-torn society of Tamizeh, Violet Path chronicles the adventures of Alexia, the fiercely independent and rebellious teenage protagonist. Alexia, an orphan, is a self-described outsider. Her jet-black hair and piercing violet eyes set her apart from the crowd of her clone-like high school peers. Her intelligence and superior martial arts skills pique the interest of Matthew, the ruthless and bloodthirsty Tamizeh overlord and mastermind of the Long War. Alexia is recruited against her will to fight for Matthew, but her rebellious spirit and strong morals kick in, setting up what becomes an epic struggle between good and evil.
Violet Path will be released October 18 and is available for preorder through BQB’s online store: http://www.shop.boutiqueofqualitybooks.com/
