Publisher Description

“This debut has it all: music, books, aliens, adventure, resistance, queerness, and a bold heroine tying it all together. ”—Ms. Magazine

Can a girl who risks her life for books and an Ilori who loves pop music work together to save humanity?

When a rebel librarian meets an Ilori commander…

Two years ago, a misunderstanding between the leaders of Earth and the invading Ilori resulted in the death of one-third of the world’s population. Today, seventeen-year-old Ellie Baker survives in an Ilori-controlled center in New York City. All art, books and creative expression are illegal, but Ellie breaks the rules by keeping a secret library.

When young Ilori commander Morris finds Ellie’s illegal library, he’s duty-bound to deliver her for execution. But Morris isn’t a typical Ilori…and Ellie and her books might be the key to a desperate rebellion of his own.

YA Sci Fi

Loved this book. I really hope the authors writes more sci fi.

OSU kitkat ,

Great story with so many lessons of our time.

A story about believing in yourself. Sci-fi and adventure interwoven within a love story. Touches on racial injustice, gender and sexual identity, and mental health. A great, quick read. Is there a sequel?

Enjoyable

I loved this love story! Ellie and M0Rr1s aren’t your typical heroes but tough times calls for drastic measures. An alien invasion and a small rebellion pushes them together and the adventure that follows is thrilling. Ellie is genuine and M0Rr1s is a joy. Who doesn’t love a story about music and stories? Enjoyed this very much!
