Margo Berendsen's Current Query

One last query before we get to A to Z. Does anyone know Margo? She blogs at Delusions at High Altitude, so please visit her blog and become a follower.

Now, her letter:

Seventeen year old Camria and her twin sister Liz were the first children ever conceived and born on the International Space Station. Cam just wants to be a normal high school junior and skip all the attention that goes with being a highly publicized “space twin.” But when she’s blinded in a freak explosion, and Liz disappears, she’ll do anything to get her sister and her sight back.

Cam suspects there’s something more to Lander, a new transfer student, than his odd accent and his interest in her. Turns out he’s from a planet not yet discovered by Earth, and he knows why Liz disappeared. A high-tech alien faction is bent on taking over minds of unsuspecting humans, and they've started with Cam’s sister.

When Lander offers to take Cam to find Liz, and to restore her sight with his advanced technology, Cam accepts, but whoa. She didn't count on traveling through wormholes, fighting off mind control, and facing her own growing attraction to Lander. After Lander appears to turn traitor, Cam must decide to cut a deal to save her sister and herself, or risk their lives to keep the enemy faction from stealing more minds from Earth.

STARTRIPPED is an 85K science fiction for young adults that should appeal to fans of the Across the Universe and I Am Number Four series. Thank you for your time and consideration.

That's it!

Please thank Margo for sharing in the comments, and then save your feedback for tomorrow.
