Overview


Some things are worth fighting for: a sense of identity, personal freedom, truth, and new love-even in a society that forbids them.


In the aftershocks of catastrophic climate change, the fundamentalist Christian group Unitas seized the opportunity to grab power in the United States. Gabi's father, Sam Lowell, is one of the most powerful men on the Unitas council... and his sickly daughter's hero, until Gabi discovers the horrors being carried out in the name of religion.


Gabi's mission to expose Unitas will take her into the company of misfits and dissidents and beyond the borders of everything she knows as her life is threatened at every turn. Along the way, she uncovers her true origins and astonishing power, along with a ruthless dictatorship masquerading as a benevolent democracy that will stop at nothing-including playing God-to win the game of survival.

About the Author

Julie Aitcheson began her pursuit of writing as a screenwriter, then realized that a little exposition never hurt anyone and switched to books. She's had articles published in Echo Quarterly, Communities Magazine (formerly Talking Leaves Magazine), Isabella, and All Things Girl. She received a full fellowship to the 2013 Stowe StoryLabs and won second place in the 2014 San Miguel Writers' Conference nonfiction writing competition.

Julie lives wherever her bohemian heart takes her-and wherever she can hit the hiking trails when her muse decides to take a personal day. She has worked extensively with young adults as an experiential educator, both across the United States and in India. After spearheading an initiative to assist at-risk youth in becoming trained for green jobs, Julie threw herself into writing stories for young adults that do justice to their intelligence and complex emotional lives. She is the author of Harmony Ink Press title Being Roy, and credits her Catholic upbringing, fascination with religion and spirituality of all stripes, and her environmental education degree for the inspiration to write First Girl.

Julie continues to seek out unique life experiences to provide grist for the mill of her imagination, including her work as a medical actress at a simulation laboratory. There she indulged her love of the dramatic arts and her passion for health and education while amassing enough writing material to sink a barge.
