Rain is forbidden. As a matter of fact, any teen romance is quickly snuffed out by the Administration due to the high S.L.A.G. (symptomatic latent autistic gene) rate. But that isn’t going to slow Orion down. He wants Rain, and one way or another, he’s going to get her. The problem? She isn’t interested in the hunky new boy who struts into her Geography class right after an earthquake strikes Province A. New students are rare in the Provinces, and much to Rain’s dismay she must show him around for three long days.
But there’s much more to Orion than what meets the eye. The cocky boy has secrets, not only about his family but about Rain’s as well. When a romance finally develops, Rain and Orion must find a covert hiding place so the Administration’s prying eyes won’t find them. But will it work? The hedge gap seems the perfect place, until Orion mysteriously disappears, leaving only one cryptic clue. The letter K. Heartbroken, Rain feels the loss of Orion viscerally and is determined to find him. Eventually, after giving up on Orion, Rain settles into a normal routine with her new family, trying to forget about him.
But Rain soon discovers that she has the biggest secret of all, and if the Administration finds out, there is more at stake than just a teen romance. Left on her own, Rain must face the biggest decision of her life. There are only two paths to follow. Which one will she take?
Book 1 in the Blue Spectrum Chronicles will keep you tethered to your seat, waiting to turn each page to see what happens when a young couple bravely dares to fall in love at a time when it is strictly forbidden.
“Ready?” Smudge asked.
I didn’t know if I was ready or not. Would I ever be ready for someone like Smudge? Someone who was really Orion, a constellation of questions and enticements and irritations that careened out of the sky like a rapidly shooting star, landing right at my feet.
I puffed out my cheeks and blew a breath out, answering confidently, as if I went around with boys all of the time.
