Free to Fall
by Lauren Miller

Expected Publication: May 13, 2014

SYNOPSIS:

What if there was an app that told you what song to listen to, what coffee to order, who to date, even what to do with your life—an app that could ensure your complete and utter happiness? What if you never had to fail or make a wrong choice?

What if you never had to fall?

Fast-forward to a time when Apple and Google have been replaced by Gnosis, a monolith corporation that has developed the most life-changing technology to ever hit the market: Lux, an app that flawlessly optimizes decision making for the best personal results. Just like everyone else, sixteen-year-old Rory Vaughn knows the key to a happy, healthy life is following what Lux recommends. When she’s accepted to the elite boarding school Theden Academy, her future happiness seems all the more assured. But once on campus, something feels wrong beneath the polished surface of her prestigious dream school. Then she meets North, a handsome townie who doesn’t use Lux, and begins to fall for him and his outsider way of life. Soon, Rory is going against Lux’s recommendations, listening instead to the inner voice that everyone has been taught to ignore — a choice that leads her to uncover a truth neither she nor the world ever saw coming.

Fragile Line
by Brooklyn Skye

It can happen in a flash. One minute she’s kissing her boyfriend, the next she’s lost in the woods. Sixteen-year-old Ellie Cox is losing time. It started out small…forgetting a drive home or a conversation with a friend. But her blackouts are getting worse, more difficult to disguise as forgetfulness. When Ellie goes missing for three days, waking up in the apartment of a mysterious guy—a guy who is definitely not her boyfriend, her life starts to spiral out of control.

Perched on the edge of insanity, with horrific memories of her childhood leaking in, Ellie struggles to put together the pieces of what she’s lost—starting with the name haunting her, Gwen. Heartbreakingly beautiful, this poignant story follows one girl’s harrowing journey to finding out who she really is.

INSPIRATION FOR FRAGILE LINE


The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of Hell, a hell of Heaven.
~ JOHN MILTON, Paradise Lost


I’ve always been drawn to psychology. In college it was my favorite subject, and it seems mental disorders always find their way into my stories. The inspiration for FRAGILE LINE came from an episode of Oprah years ago. Funny as it sounds, I feel like I was fated to find this idea. Because that afternoon I sat down in front of the TV (which I RARELY do) and watched an episode of Oprah (which I NEVER did—that’s like an old person’s show, right?) But on this show was a guest who was living with a mental disorder. I can’t say which one, because that will give away the twist of Ellie’s story, but it was one I couldn’t stop thinking about. For weeks. It was like a seed planted in my brain that kept growing and growing until I knew this story was demanding to be told. Over the course of three years, I rewrote this story eight times, changed the title three times, and cried when it finally found a home with Entangled Publishing. FRAGILE LINE is a realistic story about a young girl who is discovering just what the mind is capable of.
