Award-winning author Karen Healey introduces a haunting, dystopian future in her latest thrill-filled adventure.

Before sixteen-year-old Tegan Oglietti died, she was just like most girls living in 2027--happiest when playing the guitar, falling in love for the first time, and protesting the wrongs of the world alongside her friends.

Unbeknownst to her, upon her death she was cryonically frozen by a mysterious government agency. When Tegan "wakes up"in a government facility, she discovers it is a hundred years in the future, she is an instant celebrity for her successful revival, and the future isn't at all what she thought it would be. When appalling secrets come to light, Tegan must make a choice: Does she keep her head down and try to get back to a normal life, or fight back for the future she always envisioned?

Healey is the author of the Morris Award Finalist novel Guardian of the Dead.

My name is Tegan Oglietti, and on the last day of my first lifetime, I was so, so happy.
Sixteen-year-old Tegan is just like every other girl living in 2027--she's happiest when playing the guitar, she's falling in love for the first time, and she's joining her friends to protest the wrongs of the world: environmental collapse, social discrimination, and political injustice.
But on what should have been the best day of Tegan's life, she dies--and wakes up a hundred years in the future, locked in a government facility with no idea what happened.
Tegan is the first government guinea pig to be cryonically frozen and successfully revived, which makes her an instant celebrity--even though all she wants to do is try to rebuild some semblance of a normal life. But the future isn't all she hoped it would be, and when appalling secrets come to light, Tegan must make a choice: Does she keep her head down and survive, or fight for a better future?
Award-winning author Karen Healey has created a haunting, cautionary tale of an inspiring protagonist living in a not-so-distant future that could easily be our own.
