A thrilling, thought provoking novel from one of young adult literature's boldest new talents. January 29, 2035. That's the day the comet is scheduled to hit-the big one. Denise and her mother and sister, Iris, have been assigned to a temporary shelter outside their hometown of Amsterdam to wait out the blast, but Iris is nowhere to be found, and at the rate Denise's drug addicted mother is going, they'll never reach the shelter in time. A last minute meeting leads them to something better than a temporary shelter-a generation ship, scheduled to leave Earth behind to colonize new worlds after the comet hits. But everyone on the ship has been chosen because of their usefulness. Denise is autistic and fears that she'll never be allowed to stay. Can she obtain a spot before the ship takes flight? What about her mother and sister? When the future of the human race is at stake, whose lives matter most?

Corinne Duyvis is a novelist and short story writer and an editor of the website Disability in Kidlit. She's a graduate of the Clarion West writer's workshop and lives in Amsterdam. Her first novel, Otherbound, received four starred reviews, and Horn Book called it a humdinger of an adventure that contains the agony of loyalty, the allure of magic, and, most gratifyingly, the element of surprise. www.corinneduyvis.net.
