When a group of outcasts with extraordinary abilities comes out of hiding, their clash with a violent society will spark a revolution-or an apocalypse. Avi Hirsch has always known his daughter was different. But when others with incredible, otherworldly gifts reveal themselves to the world, Avi realizes that her oddness is something more-that she is something more. With this, he has a terrifying revelation: Emmeline is now entering a society where her unique abilities unfairly mark her as a potential threat. And even though he is her father, Avi cannot keep her safe forever. Emmeline soon meets others just like her: Carrie Norris, a teenage girl who can turn invisible . . . but just wants to be seen. Fahima Deeb, a woman with an uncanny knack for machinery . . . but it´s her Muslim faith that makes the U.S. government suspicious of her. They are the nobody people-ordinary individuals with extraordinary gifts who want one only thing: to live as equals in an America that is gripped by fear and hatred. But the government is passing discriminatory laws. Violent mobs are taking to the streets. And one of their own-an angry young man seething with self-loathing-has used his power in an act of mass violence that has put a new target on the community. The nobody people must now stand together and fight for their future, or risk falling apart. A timely saga of love and hope in the face of bigotry, The Nobody People is a powerful novel that uses a world touched by the fantastic to explore our current reality. It is a story of family and community. It is a story of continuing to fight for one another, no matter the odds. It is the story of us. Advance praise for The Nobody People ´´Thoughtful, nuanced, kinetic, and, above all, human, this is the superhero story we´ve been waiting for.´´-Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author of the October Daye series ´´The Nobody People is an expertly plotted, morally complex, brilliantly written, adrenaline-fueled adventure into a new dawn of heroes and villains. Hold on tight to this novel, because you´re in for a hell of a ride.´´-Benjamin Percy, author of The Dark Net, Thrill Me, Red Moon, and The Dead Lands

As the twentieth century draws to a close, Maria is at the start of a life she never thought possible. She and Khalil, her college sweetheart, are planning their wedding. They are the perfect couple, ´´King and Queen of the Racially Nebulous Prom.´´ Their skin is the same shade of beige. They live together in a black bohemian enclave in Brooklyn, where Khalil is riding the wave of the first dot-com boom and Maria is plugging away at her dissertation, on the Jonestown massacre. They´ve even landed a starring role in a documentary about ´´new people´´ like them, who are blurring the old boundaries as a brave new era dawns. Everything Maria knows she should want lies before her--yet she can´t stop daydreaming about another man, a poet she barely knows. As fantasy escalates to fixation, it dredges up secrets from the past and threatens to unravel not only Maria´s perfect new life but her very persona. Heartbreaking and darkly comic, New People is a bold and unfettered page-turner that challenges our every assumption about how we define one another, and ourselves.

So yeah, it´s epic.´´--HelloGiggles ´´In People Like Us, Dana Mele delivers the Gossip Girl meets Pretty Little Liars young adult novel you´ve been waiting for.´´--Bustle Kay Donovan may have skeletons in her closet, but the past is past, and she´s reinvented herself entirely. Now she´s a star soccer player whose group of gorgeous friends run their private school with effortless popularity and acerbic wit. But when a girl´s body is found in the lake, Kay´s carefully constructed life begins to topple. The dead girl has left Kay a computer-coded scavenger hunt, which, as it unravels, begins to implicate suspect after suspect, until Kay herself is in the crosshairs of a murder investigation. But if Kay´s finally backed into a corner, she´ll do what it takes to survive. Because at Bates Academy, the truth is something you make...not something that happened. Debut author Dana Mele has written a taut, sophisticated suspense novel that will keep readers guessing until the very end.
