YA Author Naomi Hughes Book Signing at Best of Books
We are excited to welcome young adult author Naomi Hughes to our store! She will be signing copies of her new book, AFTERIMAGE, on Saturday, Oct. 6 from noon to 1:30 pm.
A horrific explosion levels part of the city and Camryn Kingfisher is the sole survivor.
Amidst controversy, conspiracy theories, and threats from government officials, Camryn longs for the truth. But the only person she can turn to is a transparent boy in a lab coat named Quint. Unsure whether he’s a hallucination or a ghost, Camryn has no choice but to trust him as they become embroiled in a plot that is bigger than either of them realizes.
In a race where the fabric of time and space is at stake, they must figure out who caused the explosion before the culprit comes back to finish Camryn--and her city--off for good.
“[This] high-action, science-fiction thriller starts with a bang and never slows for a beat. …[Plot] twists, flashbacks, and alternate timelines keep the story full of surprises. A wild, fast-paced ride full of unexpected turns.” –Kirkus Reviews
“Hughes’ character-driven science fiction pulls the reader through a dizzying maze of complex but logical plot twists, and Camryn’s fully realized, first-person voice sustains this taut thriller.” –Booklist Reviews
“This tale deserves a prominent place on sci-fi shelves.” –School Library Journal
