Synopsis: Upcoming + Current Titles
MINDSCAPES: (book 1): #ya #fantasy
It's about survival mode when London is abducted and brought to the Program by teenage Asian scientist, Jane. He must unravel the secrets of the yellow padded room by expanding his mind in search of answers. Along with a series of physical and mental challenges, he navigates a web of lies along the way. Like who his real dad is and the life he could have had.
Set in 2050 at the North Pole, it's remote but technologically advanced. The themes of marginalized characters and mental health come into play--via two biracial protagonists who struggle with depression and anxiety disorder. It's a question of utilitarianism when young minds are used for the good of the masses. Regardless of the cost.
There's a juxtaposition between science and faith that pulls the reader to challenge her own views of the world. Can they both exist side by side? It's possible even science requires a bit of faith sometimes. Add luck to the mix, and things get pretty hot--as in actual fire, using pyrokinesis. Can't give too much away though at this point.
This novel is THIEF OF LIES x ORPHAN QUEEN plus a mix of the new Netflix show: Homecoming. Being smart turns out to be a double edged sword for London. But he's not giving up, especially to save the girl he loves.
