BECOME by Ali Cross

Sixteen-year old Desolation Black wants nothing more than to stay in Hell where it’s cold and lonely and totally predictable. Instead, she’s sent back to Earth where she must face the evil she despises and the good she always feared.

When Desi is forced to embrace her inner demon, she assumes her choice has been made—that she has no hope of being anything other than what her father, Lucifer, has created her to be. What she doesn’t count on, is finding a reason to change—something she’s never had before—a friend.

First line:
"The knocking at his door was as sharp and insistent as lightning in a dry sky."

Ali graced us at the local library where she gave a fun presentation on writing AND donated her book to the library!
This story is about Desolation, daughter of Satan. She's sent to earth for punishment or to help get more followers for her dad. But she isn't all dark. She has a warmth inside that she hides from her dad. Ironically, she's rebeling against her dad with a spark of warmth/hope.
