"YOU CAN BE SAVED. IF YOU GIVE UP EVERYTHING YOU LOVE…"
In Washington, DC, seventy years after democracy has fallen, the number you’re assigned by the government decrees your fate.
Seventeen-year-old orphan Kitty Doe is stuck as a III, looked down upon by the higher ranks. Until a chance encounter gives her the opportunity to become a VII and join the most powerful family in the country.
If she says yes, Kitty will be transformed into Lila Hart, the Prime Minister’s niece, who died under mysterious circumstances. As a member of the Hart family, she will be famous. Adored. Especially by Lila’s boyfriend, Knox.
But becoming part of society’s inner circle also means seeing its darkest secrets and learning a twisted game Kitty’s only beginning to understand…Praise for Aimee Carter

About the author
Aimée Carter was born in 1986 and raised in Michigan, where she currently resides. She started writing fan fiction at eleven, began her first original story four years later, and hasn’t stopped writing since. Besides writing and reading, she enjoys seeing movies, playing with her puppies, and wrestling with the puzzles in the paper each morning.
Carter (the Goddess Test series) tries her hand at near-future dystopia, with mixed results. The economy has collapsed, and resources have run out that's as much world-building as Carter does, so it's hard to see how or why the United States has willingly and rapidly transformed from prosperous democracy to micromanaged dictatorship. Kitty, raised in a state-mandated group home, is in love with her boyfriend, Benjy, but her test results show she's a low achiever, and the 17-year-old is assigned a sewer-maintenance job in faraway Denver. While they wait for Benjy to be tested, Kitty runs away to become a prostitute, only to have her virginity bought by the most powerful man in the country, Prime Minister Daxton Hart. It's not sex he's after, though: he wants Kitty to impersonate his dead niece. Why, and at what price, Kitty can only guess. The romance is anemic, with Benjy barely mentioned for chapters at a time. Though well-paced and readable, as Carter's prose normally is, the absence of credible setting or emotion makes this an underwhelming read. Ages 14 up.
