Fresh Batch, posted weekly, keeps you up to date on the hottest releases of the upcoming week.
Flavor of the week:
Series: Control #1
Publication date: December 26th 2013
by Dial Books for Young Readers
An un-putdownable thriller for fans of Uglies
When a crash kills their father and leaves them orphaned, Zel knows she needs to protect her sister, Dyl. But before Zel has a plan, Dyl is taken by strangers using bizarre sensory weapons, and Zel finds herself in a safe house for teens who aren’t like any she’s ever seen before—teens who shouldn’t even exist. Using broken-down technology, her new friends’ peculiar gifts, and her own grit, Zel must find a way to get her sister back from the kidnappers who think a powerful secret is encoded in Dyl’s DNA.
A spiraling, intense, romantic story set in 2150—in a world of automatic cars, nightclubs with auditory ecstasy drugs, and guys with four arms—this is about the human genetic “mistakes” that society wants to forget, and the way that outcasts can turn out to be heroes.
I love salt more than chocolate. I’m somewhat small, yet deceptively strong. Sort of like an ant.
I write YA fiction, poetry and narrative medical nonfiction. I’m a part time doc, full time family member, and rather oxygen dependent.
My YA sci-fi novel, CONTROL, will debut December 2013 (Dial/Penguin). I’ll be holding my breath until then. Watch me.
