One of those perspective belongs to Kaus, an artificial general intelligence, shown here on the cover embodied in an agricultural drone. Look for Children of Arkadia to launch in March/April 2015.
Twelve-year-old Sunny lives in Nigeria, but she was born American. Her features are African, but she’s albino. She’s a terrific athlete, but can’t go out into the sun to play soccer. There seems to be no place where she fits. And then she discovers something amazing—she is a “free agent,” with latent magical power.
Best read-aloud for 11 year olds EVER. This is my 29th year of teaching...14th year in 5th grade; trust me. KIDS LOVE THIS BOOK. Great way to start the school year, discussing rules. Wonderful story to introduce CONFLICT in lit.
