I am organizing a review opportunity for Before I Shatter by Mandy Peterson. Review copies are available in e-format (mobi, epub and pdf). There is no deadline before when you have to review this book! Sign-ups are now closed.
In the Lunar Colonies, scientific advances are the key to survival.
Seventeen-year-old Vita is the daughter of two prominent scientists. When her unique ability to project her consciousness onto different planes without aid is discovered, the ambitious Director takes over her development, and he wants to see just how far she can go.
Succeeding where others have failed has a price. A growing population of Shells – people whose minds have shattered from the stress of experimentation – shows just how ruthless the Director can be in pursuit of his goal.
It’s up to Vita’s Processor, young hotshot James, to catch her before she breaks. But he’s keeping a dangerous secret.
With the Director’s tasks getting more and more impossible, James’s growing affection for her, and the sudden appearance of a mysterious stranger, Vita’s mind is reeling. Someone is playing games with her. A game where the loser ends up shattered.
Vita must make the choice: Continue risking her life or make an unprecedented escape?
You can find Before I Shatter on Goodreads
When she isn’t writing about herself in third person, Mandy the high school librarian can be found digging through young adult and new adult lit. An avid reader of all genres (but she secretly told me she loves sci-fi the most), you will usually see her with her nose in a book or face to her Kindle app, iced or blended coffee drink in hand. A former roller girl and roller derby referee, she can also be found watching roller derby online or dragging her family behind her to cheer on teams in person all over their great state.
