YA Speculative Fiction
Anamae’s mother is missing.
She’s been gone for nine years. When seventeen year old Anamae accidently activates technology that makes her invisible, it attracts an attacker, leaving her wondering if this is what happened to her mother. Forced to take shelter in a safe house, she learns the attacker was an agent of a secret society. They suppress the knowledge of technology so advanced it could be straight from a science fiction movie.
Now Anamae knows the secret, she’s at the top of their hit list.
Anamae must stay in hiding until her new protectors secure her safety. But when she discovers the society used mind altering technology on her father, her worst fears become a heartbreaking reality. The society has made her disappear from the world, just like her mother. The need to regain control of her life and restore her father’s memory, leads her to join the fight against the society. But she’s not prepared to idly wait for others to regain her freedom for her. With her newfound tech, allowing her to blink into and out of visibility, she sets out to destroy them. She must learn to depend on her new friends. If they fail she’ll never be able to return to her old life, the society will continue to manipulate the world around her and she will be in danger forever.
First 150 Words:
How do I tell my mother what’s happened, what she’s missed, everything about my life?
Chin cupped in hand, I sit at the desk in my room and stare at the pale yellow notepaper before me. The blue lines across it are as empty as my pounding head. I hold my favourite pen, poised in my hand ready to write, but the words elude me. I let out a long sigh.
Two faces stare up from the photo waiting to be slipped into the envelope along with the letter. It’s a ‘selfie’, not one of my beautiful nature shots that I normally put with my annual letter. My cheek’s pushed up against Will’s. His sandy blonde hair falls into his bright blue eyes. His arm, resting over my shoulders, pulls us close together. Our grins say more than words ever will. I smile, he’s my best friend.
