Entangledby Amy Rose Capetta
Synopses & Reviews
Alone was the note Cade knew best. It was the root of all her chords.
Seventeen-year-old Cade is a fierce survivor, solo in the universe with her cherry-red guitar. Or so she thought. Her world shakes apart when a hologram named Mr. Niven tells her she was created in a lab in the year 3112, then entangled at a subatomic level with a boy named Xan.
Cades quest to locate Xan joins her with an array of outlaws—her first friends—on a galaxy-spanning adventure. And once Cade discovers the wild joy of real connection, theres no turning back.
"In this accomplished debut, the scattered remains of the human race live as second-class citizens on alien worlds, plagued by the 'spacesick' that comes from space travel. Seventeen-year-old Cade survives on the desert planet Andana, contending with the 'Noise,' a constant jumble of sound in her head. Playing guitar for the spacesicks who love her music both makes her a living and keeps her sane. One night the Noise stops, and the hologram of a dead man appears to tell her why — Cade is the product of an experiment and has been entangled on a quantum level since babyhood with a boy named Xan. Xan is being held captive in Hades, an area of space infested with black holes, and to find him, Cade joins forces with a human smuggler, an alien captain, and his sentient ship. Capetta has a muscular writing style that embodies both Cade's sensitivity to the world around her — essential for the artist she is — and the mental shields she creates to protect herself from the brutality of that world. Ages 14 — up. Agent: Sara Crowe, Harvey Klinger. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
