Melinda Braun (MelindaBraun on QT) has signed with agent Hannah Bowman of Liza Dawson Associates.
Every year, several hundred people claim to have been abducted by aliens.
Some are crazy.
Some are liars looking for attention.
And some are telling the truth.
When seventeen year-old Geneva Reid wakes up floating in the middle of the South Pacific, with no memory of how she got there, she thinks she might be going crazy.
Some at the FBI think she’s a liar.
But at least one person knows she’s telling the truth.
Because not only has she been missing, she’s been gone for ten years.
But she hasn’t aged a day.
This is Polaris - the first YA sci-fi book in a trilogy, and inspired by everything from the X-files, Back to the Future, and Flight of the Navigator, to classics like a Wrinkle in Time and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.
With the help of her best friend Will (now an FBI agent with deep insight into her case) and detained in a secret underground facility hidden in the wilds of the Australian outback, Geneva recounts her last week before her disappearance, filling in the missing pieces of the puzzle, not just to discover what happened to her, but why. As Geneva recounts her story she learns she’s not crazy, but she definitely is in danger, and it becomes a race to discover not just why some are hunting for her, but who she really is and what her destiny might be.
The manuscript is approximately 79,000 words.
