What if everything came down to a single test? If your life was defined at seventeen, could you handle it? Could you accept your fate leaving the ones you love, or would you risk it all and stay?

One test stands between Vanessa and Central. One chance to make the leap across the walls to a better life. At seventeen, Central considers Vanessa an adult. Her labor role, marriage, and housing divisions will be dictated by her performance on the leap.

Dedication and unfaltering friendship has bonded Vanessa to Garrett as they fight for their chance to leap into Central. But what happens when love overtakes reason? When defiance in the name of love creates an unintentional fracture in their nation.

Without warning Vanessa is at the mercy of the nation that’s supposed to protect her. Exiled and abandoned she must fight but she find’s she’s not alone. With her heart divided she seeks her revenge, but will her stand be enough?

NameGarrett Blaine


Appearance: Average height, strong and muscled, acorn-brown eyes, crooked smile, tanned skin (it reminds Nessa of Autumn)

Nessa: More like love, he’s been trying to win her heart since he met her at the age of five.
Competition: Whether it’s challenging Nessa to a foot race or fighting for his life, Garrett thrives in competition.
Animals: He’s got a soft spot for them. Pets aren’t allowed in their sector but that didn’t stop him from nursing a fox back to health when he was five.

Spear skills: It was his worst subject and almost got him killed in one of Nessa’s challenges.
Ty: Considering Ty’s driving force revolves around making Nessa fall for him.
Regulators: Ever since they hunted down his fox and killed it in front of him at the age of six, Garrett has been jaded and questioned the intentions of the government.

Garrett is about as loyal as they come. Once he commits himself to something or someone he will stay with it until the end. It just so happens that his biggest commitment is to Nessa. His love runs deep for her and behind his oversized muscles and charming looks Garrett is no more than a boy in love with a girl that he might never get.
