Verify by Joelle Charbonneau
Meri always dreamed of following in her mother’s footsteps as an artist for the City Pride program. That dream was cut short when her mother was killed in an accident. But really, it had been dwindling for a while, since her mother started acting distant. Now Meri’s world revolves around trying to keep her father sober and looking for meaning in her mother’s final set of paintings. But when she is given a word on a piece of paper—actual paper—she sets off a chain reaction that leads her to question everything she’s ever known.
Recommended for readers in high school and up who enjoy dystopian stories.
