Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p>Dee Moreno is out of options. Her home life sucks (to put it mildly), and she's about to get booted from her boarding school--the only place she's ever felt free--for lack of funds. But this is a world where demons exist, and the demons are there to make deals: one human body part in exchange for one wish come true.</p> <p>When Dee finally summons the courage to make a deal with one of these devils, she finds it may be more than she bargained for. The demon she approaches quickly informs her that he doesn't trade in the usual appendages, he's only interested in her heart. He'll put her body in a kind of stasis for two years, and she'll become part of his crew of "heartless"--teen soldiers sent to the demons' home world to fight their enemies. All of the heartless have their reasons for making this deal, but it begs the question: what are you willing to give up to achieve your heart's desire? </p> <p>A Faustian blend of sci-fi and paranormal horror, The Hearts We Sold is thrilling adventure with a romantic twist that will steal readers' hearts and then break them</p>

After Dee Moreno, seventeen, makes a deal with a demon, trading her heart for the chance of a good education, she becomes part of a group of "heartless" teens engaged in fighting a paranormal war.

Horn Book Review

Seventeen-year-old Dee Morenos decision to trade her heart to the Daemon in exchange for her boarding-school tuition has unexpected consequences. Namely, she joins a team in thrall to the Daemon and engaged in difficult and dangerous work. But surprisingly, the team also brings Dee love and friendship. Smart plotting and strong characters sustain this supernatural novel when it later unexpectedly shifts toward science fiction. (c) Copyright 2018.
