Read below for an excerpt from the book:
“I never imagined my world would be changing so rapidly. Just a few weeks ago I had only one friend in the world, I believed none of us knew our real names, and I had never heard of Nova. I was starting to wonder if the world was a safer place for me back then. I had a strange foreboding feeling in the pit of my stomach.”
