Jessie Atkinabout this book: What were some of your favorite things when you were a kid? Your family dog? Summer swims? Skateboarding? Basketball? Naps? Pranks? An ice-cold soda? Running for no reason? What if you could have all of that all day every day? That's the promise the underground world of Nowhere offers those who find it. But everything comes with a price. Tris Simon soon learns that her escape from her home and her overbearing parents above the ground has led to a whole new set of dangers below it. In life, is there ever really such a thing as escape? A perfect story for the young or the young at heart.
"This is a solid YA novel with a gripping plot and a strong female protagonist at its center."
-Publishers Weekly* (review of manuscript)
"It's a rare young writer who can bring such intense energy, quick-wittedness, and clearly defined characters to life on the page."
-Gina Barreca, author of It's Not That I'm Bitter and Babes in Boyland
