On the island of Bellona, they worship the sun. Seventeen-year-old Veda understands that keeping the sun content ensures plentiful crops, peace, and harmony, and a thriving economy. But as a member of the Basso class, she never reaps those benefits.

Life as a Basso is one fraught with back-breaking work and imposing rules. Her close friendship with Nico is Veda's one saving grace in a cruel world where the division between her people and the ruling Dogio is as wide and winding as the canals that snake through their island.

But when Veda's grandfather is chosen as the next sacrificial offering to keep the sun's favor, Veda is forced to see the injustice of her world. Turning away from the sun means she must join the night-and an underground revolution she's been taught to fear all her life.

Jessika Fleck is a writer, unapologetic coffee drinker, and knitter-she sincerely hopes to one day discover a way to do all three at once. Until then, she continues collecting vintage typewriters and hourglasses, dreaming of an Ireland getaway, and convincing her husband they NEED more kittens. She has lived all over the US from Hawaii to Vermont, but currently calls Illinois home. She resides there with her sociology professor husband and two daughters where she's learning to appreciate the beauty in cornfields and terrifyingly large cicadas. Beware the Night is her second published work for young adults.
