Publisher Comments:

andlt;b andgt;In this riveting debut, a telepathic girl must figure out why she is the key to her brand-new worldand#8212;before the wrong person finds the answer first.andlt;/bandgt;andlt;brandgt;andlt;brandgt;Twelve-year-old Sophie has never quite fit into her life. Sheand#8217;s skipped multiple grades and doesnand#8217;t really connect with the older kids at school, but sheand#8217;s not comfortable with her family, either. And Sophie has a secretand#8212;sheand#8217;s a Telepath, someone who can read minds. But the day Sophie meets Fitz, a mysterious (and adorable) boy, she learns sheand#8217;s not alone. Heand#8217;s a Telepath too, and it turns out the reason she has never felt at home is that, welland#8230;she isnand#8217;t. Fitz opens Sophieand#8217;s eyes to a shocking truth, and almost instantly she is forced to leave behind her family for a new life in a place that is vastly different from what she has ever known.andlt;BRandgt;andnbsp;andnbsp;andnbsp;andnbsp; But Sophie still has secrets, and theyand#8217;re buried deep in her memory for good reason: The answers are dangerous and in high-demand. What is her true identity, and why was she hidden among humans? The truth could mean life or deathand#8212;and time is running out.


About the Author

andlt;b andgt;Shannon Messengerandlt;/bandgt; graduated from the USC School of Cinematic Arts where she learnedand#8212;among other thingsand#8212;that she liked watching movies much better than making them. She also regularly eats cupcakes for breakfast, sleeps with a bright blue stuffed elephant named Ella, and occasionally gets caught talking to imaginary people. So it was only natural for her to write stories for children. andlt;i andgt;Keeper of the Lost Citiesandlt;/iandgt; is her first novel, with andlt;i andgt;Let the Sky Fallandlt;/iandgt;, a young adult novel, to follow in 2013. She lives in Southern California with her husband and an embarrassing number of cats. Visit her online at
