“OMG, this was absolutely amazing! Meimi is badass, brilliant, and snarky… And the setting! The world described is very dark and technically advanced with super interesting sciency stuff, aliens, and tons of mystery.” - Diary of a Wannabe Writer
I’m Meimi Archer, your regular high school science geek for hire. Sure, it’s dangerous to create high-tech gizmos for a criminal overlord called the Scythe, but it keeps Mom and me safely off-grid. Ever since the Authority took over the United Americas, you either live inside a domed city (where you’re watched 24-7) or you scrape by on illegal money while hiding out in the sticks. Guess what category I fall into?
Long story short, everything's fine until I screw up a job. Badly. My home slips into two-dimensional space-time. It only lasts for a few seconds, but the move still sets off about a dozen government alarms. If they track me down, Mom and I are good as dead. Now I need to pay someone off, hide the evidence, and keep us safe. Fast.
That’s when a hottie named Thorne materializes in my kitchen. He’s about my age, wears black body armor, and says he came to “this version of Earth” from another planet. We share a bizarre mind-meld moment before he vows to do anything that ensures I survive.
Hey, I’ll take all the help I can get. Plus, Thorne has dimples...
“This kept me on my toes … Be it random science, opening portals to new dimensions, evading capture, doing shady deals with crime bosses, betrayal, the humdrum of school with Lead Camper Dave (snicker), to hot (alien) man-candy sent to help save the day. Pick this up and expect to get sucked in to the Dimension Drift.” - Smada’s Book Smack

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Set in a dystopian America with round-the-clock surveillance, Scythe introduces Meimi Archer, a 16-year-old tech prodigy whose stubborn outlaw streak quickly catches the eye of authorities. Kicking off Christina Bauer’s Dimension Drift series, this clever sci-fi/action romp also packs plenty of YA-appropriate comedy and even romance. Colourful characters (including love interest and would-be interdimensional prince, Thorne) and propulsive world-building put the reader right in the thick of things, where feisty and authentic Meimi proves to be the perfect guide.
Dystopian romance with hot aliens
I really enjoyed this book! Good storyline, dialog, action, and writing. I recommend checking it out!
