Children of Jubilee

CHILDREN OF JUBILEE (2018): Since the Enforcers raided Refuge City, Rosi, Edwy, and the others are captured and forced to work as slave labor on an alien planet, digging up strange pearls. Weak and hungry, none of them are certain they will make it out of this alive.

But Edwy's tech-savvy sister, Kiandra, has always been the one with all the answers, and so they turn to her. But Kiandra realizes that she can't find her way out of this one on her own, and they all might need to rely on young Cana and her alien friend if they are going to survive.


Children of Exile cover

CHILDREN OF EXILE (2016): For her entire twelve years, Rosi and the other children of her town have been raised by kindly adults known as Freds because, they are told, their hometown isn't "safe." Now, suddenly, they are all being sent home to their original parents, but they don't know why. How much will Rosi have to risk to find out the truth? (Ages 13-17)
