Giveaway and Blog Tour: ELECTED by Rori Shay (YA Dystopian/Sci-Fi)

I'm breaking away from romance for today, to bring you something a little different! In ELECTED, Rori has created a rich and unique dystopian world and used it to address timely issues like tolerance and environmental preservation. And she's created one heck of an exciting story along the way. 

Title: Elected
Author: Rori Shay
Release Date: April 21, 2014
Where to Buy: Amazon
See the trailer here: Elected on Kickstarter

From the book:
It's the year 2185, and in two weeks, Aloy will turn eighteen and take her father's place as president of the country. But to do so, she must masquerade as a boy to avoid violating the Eco-Accords, four treaties designed to bring the world back from the brink of environmental extinction. Aloy hopes to govern like her father, but she is inheriting a different country. The long concealed Technology Faction is stepping out of the shadows, and as turmoil grows within her country, cryptic threats also arrive from beyond the borders.

As she struggles to lead, Aloy maintains her cover by marrying a woman, meanwhile battling feelings for the boy who knows her secret - the boy who is somehow connected to her country's recent upheaval. When assassination attempts add to the turmoil, Aloy doesn't know whom to trust. She understood leadership required sacrifice. She just didn't realize the sacrifice might be her life.
