My newest book is a Joss Llewelyn title, a young adult novel set in the near future about a teenage girl who invents an amazing technology to fight back against a corrupt and abusive megacorporation. It’s Hunger Games meets Iron Man! And I need a few brave readers to test it out for me…
In Carmen Zhao’s dystopian Baltimore, the invention of the home 3D printer has made it possible for everyone to make anything they want – from designer clothes to high-end electronics – right in their own homes. But this has left the city torn between the wealthy elite and the masses forced to work in massive scrap heaps and recycling plants. Luckily, Carmen was on her way out of her old neighborhood with a plush office job… until she got fired.
Down but not out, Carmen invents something of her own: solid holograms. With a high-tech suit that can turn ordinary light into extraordinary machines and weapons, she takes to the streets as the vigilante Ultraviolet, protecting her family and friends from spying drones and company thugs, and living on the run with the help of a handsome new friend. But when she sees how far the megacorps are willing to go to take away everyone’s freedoms, Carmen leads a revolution that will change her world forever.
