Death in daylight. Danger at dark.
A scalding twist on post-apoc.

Nori can't remember a time she didn't run from the sun, which was bad enough, but news of an impending sunscorch delivers her death sentence. She's already damaged goods. Her siblings were caught in a scorch years ago, and she's been living for all three of them ever since. The pressure to be normal makes her want to claw from her own skin most days.

She can't bear the light of day-- the ultimate handicap in a sunscorched world. Darkness is Nori's solace, and while out for a run one night she rescues a bruised and battered stranger. Under the threat of another sunscorch, Nori is forced to find safety underground, and when the mystery man resurfaces, his knowledge of so many subterranean secrets makes her suspicious.

Somewhere beneath a Mexican mountain range, Nori stumbles upon another secret, one that shatters everything she thought she knew. Can she use that knowledge to save what's left of the world?

Winner of the Rosemary Award for excellence in young adult fiction, Sunscorched is a tale of survival and self-discovery at breakneck speed. Dystopian fans and readers who crave strong female characters, dangerous heroes, and dark secrets, will love the Sunscorched world.
