From a Sundance Books and Music news release
Sundance Books and Music will hold a reading and signing with young adult fiction author Kristen Simmons from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, July 22. She’ll present her newest novel, The Glass Arrow (Tor Teen, 2015).
About the Book
Once there was a time when men and women lived as equals, when girls were valued, and when women could belong only to themselves. But that was ten generations ago. Now women are property, to be sold and owned and bred, while a strict census keeps their numbers manageable and under control. The best any girl can hope for is to end up as some man’s forever wife, but most are simply sold and resold until they’re all used up.
Only in the wilderness, away from the city, can true freedom be found. Aya has spent her whole life in the mountains, looking out for her family and hiding from the world, until the day the Trackers finally catch her.
Stolen from her home and being groomed for auction, Aya is desperate to escape her fate and return to her family, but her only allies are a loyal wolf she’s raised from a pup and a strange mute boy who may be her best hope for freedom . . . if she can truly trust him.
Simmons, who grew up in Reno, writes young adult fiction—the kind that’s dark and scary but generally involves some kissing. She’s the author of Article 5 (2012), Breaking Point (2013) and Three (2014), as well as The Glass Arrow (2015) and Metaltown (coming 2016).
