A YA SCI-FI THRILLER
To be published.
In a 2069 Constantinople refugee camp, sixteen-year-old Fortuna Noble fears for her life when other Displaced children start disappearing. “Bloody Dominator privilege,” she thinks, since only Displaced children are missing. But who’s taking them –the vile half-computer half-human Compu-animates that are stalking her encampment at night? The only clue is on an artifact from 359 CE. Then the Animates steal the stone, her father goes missing, and her mother is mysteriously injured, leaving Fortuna to stand up against the abductors alone until four teenage time-travelers show up at her school.
Displaced, a 92k-word, 290-page YA sci-fi thriller looks at a current problem—what to do with the growing number of refugees worldwide. Sometimes it takes courage and determination to fight fate when life isn’t fair.
