by BWW News Desk - Dec 12, 2016

Three isolated towns across the world have been destroyed in a show of force by alien invaders. It is a clear warning of what will occur if their demands are not fulfilled. The fulfillment: Human children between the ages of twelve through fifteen years. Kara Harper is an unremarkable fourteen-year-old girl who is selected by The Aliens. She will be physically and socially orientated during the six months it will take to arrive at the planet Zaratan. The girl who liked the safety of being invisible, cannot help but stand out. Matt Sparks, the boy next door, is also selected. Kara has had a crush on him for as long as she can remember. He vows to safeguard her. The closer they get to their destination, the more difficult it becomes to live up to his promise. Kara is unsure if she has the strength to withstand the trials and physical changes she is forced to go through. In a new life, Kara will be torn. Will she be drawn in by an alien boy who has shown interest in her or by the powerful patriarch who sees her as the future of his race? Selected is available for purchase in both print and ebook formats. Book Details: Selected The Zaratan Trilogy, Book One By Evelyn Lederman Published: May 2016 ISBN: 978-0692713402 ASIN: B01GEY1PAE Pages: 197 Genre: YA Sci-fi About the Author: Evelyn Lederman cannot remember if her first crush was on Paul McCartney or James T. Kirk. Either way, Science Fiction has always been a part of her life. When it came to write her first Young Adult novel, she chose the genre closest to her heart. She lives in Florida with her cats, her tennis racquets, and her beach bag all packed and ready to go. Like her main character in 'Selected,' she loves the beach. Most of her literary inspiration occurs while walking along a sandy shore. Her two adult series, Worlds Apart and Nightshade Saga are about parallel dimensions and soul mates.
