About the Book
“A teenage runaway survives a brutal attack with the aid of a beautiful stranger, only to discover her new friend isn’t quite the hero she’s always dreamed of.” — Kirkus Reviews
When a brutal attack leaves her barely conscious, Kalli thinks that the young man carrying her away is an angel sent to ferry her to Heaven. After all of the abuse and months of homelessness, Kalli welcomes the relief that Heaven would bring. Handsome Ellis, though, turns out to be just as mortal as she is. A kind stranger, Ellis saves her life by taking her to a local clinic to be healed. Once better, Kalli finds herself staying with her unusual rescuer while being monitored constantly by his mysterious family. It’s not an ideal situation, but it beats the streets. Now that she’s safe and warm and appears to have found someone who cares for her, Kalli assumes the worst is behind her. She couldn’t be more wrong.

Broken Worlds in Schools
Publishing her debut novel has been a dream come true for Anitha, and she is hoping to share this excitement with senior ENGLISH CLASS/WRITER’S CRAFT CLASS in the United States and Canada. Anitha would love to share her experience with students and show them that publication is possible.
The first fifty pages of a story are critical in grabbing the interest of the literary agent, publisher, and ultimately the reader. As such, CBaY Books and Anitha have made the first fifty pages of Broken Worlds available, along with a set of discussion questions.
Also, for any class interested, Anitha would be glad to Skype and answer any questions students may have about writing and getting published.
If you would like to participate, please register your class with us by using our contact form, and download the pdf version of the first fifty pages and the discussion guides. Also, each registered class will receive a single signed copy of Broken Worlds.
