He’s a living weapon. She’s a teenage fugitive. Together, they’ll either uncover an alien conspiracy…or die trying.
Erika Holt is one school year away from freedom, but a twist of fate could turn her into a fugitive. When a fun night in the Arizona desert turns deadly, Erika only survives with the help of a mysterious creature. She’s faced with an impossible decision: risk her future to hide her savior or do nothing and condemn him to a life in a cage.
Bred as a weapon, Number Nine’s spliced genes give him the power to kill with his mind. Part alien, part human, he’s never known kindness or love… until his escape from the top-secret government facility brings him face to face with a spunky 17-year-old girl. On the run from black ops mercenaries, Erika and Number Nine must work together to uncover the secrets of his origins before the Earth is thrown into intergalactic war.
HALF: The Deep Beneath is the first book in a gripping YA sci-fi trilogy. If you like alien encounters, fast-paced action, and intergalactic romance, then you’ll love Natalie Wright’s award-winning adventure.

“This gut-wrenching, poetic memoir reminds us that no life story can be reduced to the word ‘refugee.’” —New York Times Book Review
“A critical piece of literature, contributing to the larger refugee narrative in a way that is complex and nuanced.” —School Library Journal (starred review)
This profoundly moving memoir is the remarkable and inspiring true story of Sandra Uwiringiyimana, a girl from the Democratic Republic of the Congo who tells the tale of how she survived a massacre, immigrated to America, and overcame her trauma through art and activism.
Sandra was just ten years old when she found herself with a gun pointed at her head. She had watched as rebels gunned down her mother and six-year-old sister in a refugee camp. Remarkably, the rebel didn’t pull the trigger, and Sandra escaped.
Thus began a new life for her and her surviving family members. With no home and no money, they struggled to stay alive. Eventually, through a United Nations refugee program, they moved to America, only to face yet another ethnic disconnect. Sandra may have crossed an ocean, but there was now a much wider divide she had to overcome. And it started with middle school in New York.
In this memoir, Sandra tells the story of her survival, of finding her place in a new country, of her hope for the future, and how she found a way to give voice to her people.
