Meet Midnight At The Electric!

Kansas, 2065 Adri has been handpicked to live on Mars. But weeks before Launch, she discovers the journal of a girl who lived in her house over a hundred years ago, and is immediately drawn into the mystery surrounding her fate. While Adri knows she must focus on the mission ahead, she becomes captivated by a life that’s been lost in time…and how it might be inextricably tied to her own. 

Oklahoma, 1934 Amidst the fear and uncertainty of the Dust Bowl, Catherine longs for the immortality promised by a professor at a traveling show called The Electric. But as her family’s situation becomes more dire -- and the suffocating dust threatens her sister’s life -- Catherine must find the courage to sacrifice everything she loves in order to save the one person she loves most. 

England, 1919 In the recovery following World War One, Lenore tries to come to terms with her grief for her brother, a fallen British soldier, and plans to sail to America in pursuit of a childhood friend. But even if she makes it that far, will her friend be the person she remembers, and the one who can bring her back to herself? 

While their stories spans thousands of miles and multiple generations, Lenore, Catherine, and Adri’s fates are entwined in ways both heartbreaking and hopeful.

Top Five Magical Books That Inspire Me:

Dangerous Angels, Francesca Lia Block – I read this many years ago, and it was this eureka moment for me about what it was possible to write. It changed everything I thought I knew about books for young people. It was strange and edgy and it made its own rules, it had these characters I’d never seen the likes of before, and it was magical but also real. It was real but with a glow. I loved that.  

Beloved, Toni Morrison – In a class by itself, this book is so deeply important and beautiful and brilliant it’s hard to classify. Reading it was, for me, this breathtaking realization that magic can be a language for expressing an experience and a history and a wound that is almost inexpressible.

The Moor’s Last Sigh, Salman Rushdie– “And the trees, whose leaves we eat, whose bark we gnaw, remember sadly that they were animals once, they climbed like squirrels and bounded like deer, until one day they paused, and their legs grew down into the earth and stuck there, spreading, and vegetation sprouted from their swaying heads. They remember this as a fact; but the lived reality of their fauna years, the how-it-felt of that chaotic freedom is beyond recapture. They remember it as a rustle in their leaves.” Yeah.   

Another Roadside Attraction, Tom Robbins – I aspire to someday trust myself enough to write with this much quirk. It seems to defy anyone who thinks you have to be and act and think and write in any other way than a way that is completely you. It’s the fact that his books are so non-serious, yet so seriously inventive, that make them so important to me. Thelonious Monk said “a genius is the one most like himself” and these books remind me of that.

Red Dwarf, Grant Naylor– This novel is more sci-fi than magical, and I think Grant Naylor is actually a pseudonym for two people, and I also think the book came after the British radio series and TV series of the same name (and that it’s also the book on which the movie Passengers was loosely based). Still, I have loved it forever because it taught me you can put anything in your story if you really want to, including a timespan of millions of years and a friendship between a cat-person, a hologram, and a lazy British guy.

I love the light and dark contrasts on the cover. The story line sounds complicated, but I would like to see how it all goes together.

The cover has an interesting and magical vibe. I love the colours and the dark background.

Interweaving three different stories at once sounds like quite a task and I'm interested to see how it all comes together.

I've been wanting to read this novel so badly. The synopsis is so intriguing, and it's completed pulled me in. I want to know how Lenore, Catherine, and Adri are connected, and how their fates are tied to each other. Furthermore, the cover is so gorgeous. I love the intensity of the lights against the otherwise dark background.

Very mysterious...in appearance and summary. Can't help wondering what Mars holds for Adri or how Catherine could possibly gain immortality (literally or figuratively). And what is The Electric all about?

So many questions in my mind. And I'm sooo curious. Sounds like a great blend of historical fiction and science fiction to satisfy my unusual taste in lit. ^_^
