by Carissa Andrews
Paperback (ebook), 286 pages
Published October 10th 2013 by Carissa Andrews
Genre: YA - Science Fiction > Dystopia

Humanity has colonized on the tidally locked planet Pendomus. 

Residing between extreme heat and frigid cold is the complex known as the Helix. Within lies a highly sophisticated society functioning solely on humans fulfilling their life’s purpose as determined by their natural aptitudes and daily brain scans. 

Seventeen-year-old Runa Cophem has found her calling studying the ancient trees nearby and anxiously awaits a professional placement which will allow her to continue her work. 

Runa’s life takes an unforeseen turn when she’s brutally attacked and left for dead in those woods. Rescued by a stranger with blue hair, she’s immersed into a surprising way humanity has survived without the Helix. Fueled by a yearning to understand and an attraction she didn’t even know was possible, Runa tries to make a new life for herself. Yet, there’s much she doesn’t know about herself, about the planet, and the forces controlling her from afar. 

What she needs are some answers.

I've asked author Carissa Andrews to tell me 10 things she could never live without. Here were her answers.

  1. My husband. He's my rock. 
  2. My kids. Though they may not know it, they are my source of joy (even on the stressful days!).
  3. My best friend and beta reader. Even when the world is going to hell in a hand basket around me, I know she's got my back.
  4. My imagination. Let's face it, where would any author be without this?
  5. My laptop. To capture the imagination before it escapes. 
  6. Coffee. Because it keeps my brain active, and on the rare occasion, tastes good. ;)
  7. Workouts. I become a crotchety woman without these. The more strenuous the better. I need to know how far I can push myself. 
  8. Hugs and cuddles. No words can ever express all the love that comes from hugs and cuddles. I cannot live without them from my husband and kids. Nor can I ever get enough! 
  9. Great conversations. I love thought provoking conversations. Things that engage my mind and liven a room. 
  10. Meditation. It's my source of stillness, allowing me to make sense of all the extra chatter.
