THIS SPLINTERED SILENCE
HarperTeen // November 13, 2018
FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE SANDCASTLE EMPIRE COMES A SCI-FI THRILLER THAT’S EQUAL PARTS ILLUMINAE AND ONE OF US IS LYING.
Lindley Hamilton has been the leader of the space station Lusca since every first-generation crew member on board—including her mother, the commander—was killed by a deadly virus.
Lindley always assumed she’d captain the Lusca one day, but she never thought that day would come so soon. And she never thought it would be like this—struggling to survive every day, learning how to keep the Lusca running, figuring out how to communicate with Earth, making sure they don’t run out of food.
When a member of the surviving second generation dies from symptoms that look just like the deadly virus, though, Lindley feels her world shrinking even smaller. The disease was supposed to be over; the second generation was supposed to be immune. But as more people die, Lindley must face the terrifying reality that either the virus has mutated or something worse is happening: one of their own is a killer.
“Both poetic and pulse-pounding, This Splintered Silence weaves intrigue, mystery, and romance into an unputdownable sci-fi thriller.” —Karen M. McManus, New York Times best-selling author of One of Us Is Lying

THE SANDCASTLE EMPIRE
HarperTeen // June 6, 2017
When all hope is gone, how do you survive?
Before the war, Eden’s life was easy—air conditioning, ice cream, long days at the beach. Then the revolution happened, and everything changed.
Now a powerful group called the Wolfpack controls the earth and its resources. Eden has lost everything to them. They killed her family and her friends, destroyed her home, and imprisoned her. But Eden refuses to die by their hands. She knows the coordinates to the only neutral ground left in the world, a place called Sanctuary Island, and she is desperate to escape to its shores.
Eden finally reaches the island and meets others resistant to the Wolves—but the solace is short-lived when one of Eden’s new friends goes missing. Braving the jungle in search of their lost ally, they quickly discover Sanctuary is filled with lethal traps and an enemy they never expected.
This island might be deadlier than the world Eden left behind, but surviving it is the only thing that stands between her and freedom.
