El vs. Manoo

Weight unknown, height unknown (for both)

It's the rumble in the... Space

A HUGE congratulations to my friend Emily White on this monumental occasion. I was fortunate enough to receive a copy of this epic book well before the release date. So, I don't wanna say that makes me cool, but let's just say that my new self-proclaimed nickname is, "Dr. Icebox."

But all jokes aside, this novel is a terrific addition to the YA world. Too often the literary choices for Young Adults have been tainted by the all-too present insta-love and lazy... I'm going to call it kissy writing. I can't tell you how refreshing it is to see a well-thought out plot taking place in a very three-dimensional science fiction setting. 

Emily white is a star on the rise, and people will be gazing at her work with wonder.


Just because Ella can burn someone to the ground with her mind doesn't mean she should.

But she wants to.

For ten years—ever since she was a small child—Ella has been held prisoner on an interstellar starship. Now that she has escaped, she needs answers.

Who is she? Why was she taken? And who is the boy with the beautiful green eyes who haunts her memories?

Is Ella the prophesied Destructor… or will she be the one who's destroyed?  

TAKE ON HOME TODAY! (if you can. Copies are anti-gravitating of the shelves)
