Overview

Two sisters. One destined for the crown, one doomed to silence. Princess Astrid and Princess Vega are identical in every way—except one was born near perfect, the other "deficient." Born mute. By age six, their fates are sealed. Vega will be the next queen. Astrid, the silent princess, will spend the rest of her days rotting away in a facility. It is a time when the planet has been ravaged by global warming. Famine and disease demand drastic measures to preserve resources that are already stretched paper thin. The only thing standing between Astrid and the facility, a mother's love. One day, Astrid wakes with no memory. No awareness of her royal blood. No recollection of the harrowing journey she just survived that brought her to safety and her new home: The Isle of the Never Mind. Very few know of its secret. In the heart of the island, a healing spring. Waters that, if consumed, have the ability to heal any ailment. But for the deficient, it gives them supernatural abilities. On the Never Mind, Astrid develops new gifts, a new family, a new home. She is content to live out her days as a blissfully a happy teenager on this little slice of paradise. But when a wayward plane falls from the sky carrying a handsome pilot, Astrid finds herself in danger of losing it all: her home and her heart. The Never Mind is the first book in the Never Mind Trilogy.

About the Author

Cat Meyers is an attorney and a criminal justice professor, but her passion is writing. If she’s not writing, she’s thinking about writing, reading about writing, or talking to others about writing. On the question of why she decided to write the Never Mind Trilogy, Cat says:

This book will always have a special place in my heart because I started the first book here in the U.S. I finished the rest of the series while teaching in Rome. Whenever, I flip through the pages, I’ll always remember fondly sitting with my laptop and breathing life into Astrid’s world while looking out on the Piazza del Popolo. Though The Never Mind is very different from any other book I’ve written, it continues the same theme: Never allow the world or your circumstances define you.” I know I keep saying it, but it’s so important to me, because it is so easy to find ourselves trapped in a box that someone else has created for us. Before we know it, we find ourselves scaling back our dreams and putting limits on ourselves, based on someone else’s opinion of who we are and what we’re capable of. Astrid’s journey in the Never Mind is very much a story of one girl breaking free of the box her broken world had built for her. It’s my hope that as others read it, they will start to push against the walls of their own personal box and, like Astrid, tap into talents and gifts they never imagined they possessed.

In addition to writing, Cat loves baking, painting, lounging of the beach and travelling the world.
