"Suyana Sapaki is a failure in the International Assembly. She's not charming on camera, which is crucial for a Face: public image is 90 percent of diplomacy, they tell you right from the beginning. The United Amazonian Rainforest Confederation has been the site of scandal, so she's short on allies. It's a system designed to make you useless, but she's fighting. People back home trust her, and she has a country to save--one way or the other. Daniel Park fled home to become a snap, because joining the last of the free press sounded noble before he was broke. On a hunch, he's picked C-lister Suyana Sapaki for his first outing; he thinks she's hiding something that's worth money to the right people, if he catches it on camera. Like her assassination attempt. On the run from someone who wants her dead, shadowed by someone she can't trust, Suyana will risk everything--everyone--to save her diplomatic ties; it's her only chance to control the future of her people, and she has promises to keep. The Assembly's declared her persona non grata. That's what they think"--Page 4 of cover.
"An acerbic thriller from a Nebula award finalist, set against the backdrop of a near-future world of celebrity ambassadors and assassins who manipulate the media to the point where the only truth seekers left are the paparazzi. When Suyana, Face of the United Amazonia Rainforest Confederation, secretly meets Ethan of the United States for a date that can solidify a relationship for the struggling UARC, the last thing she expects is an assassination attempt. Daniel, a teen runaway-turned-paparazzi out for his big break, witnesses the first shot hit Suyana, and before he can think about it, he jumps into the fray, telling himself it's not altruism, it's the scoop. Just like that, Suyana and Daniel are now in the game of Faces. And if they lose, they'll die"-- Goodreads website. http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/22456980-persona
