2015 Readers Favorite Gold Medal
Award for best YA Dystopian

Deep inside a mountain in what used
to be North America dwells the last of humanity. Welcome to the Biodome, where
steel, rock and armed guards separate the privileged from the slaves.

Born and raised a slave in the Pit,
Sunny O’Donnell has always accepted that she’ll spend her life working to keep
the Dome running and, if she lives long enough, willingly meet her end in the
annual Cull when she reaches the age of thirty-five. This was the price her
ancestors paid for their place inside the Biodome, the only safe haven from the
global nuclear war of 2024. But when Sunny’s mother is killed in the Cull, the
hopeless reality of her future becomes painfully clear.

Bereft and disillusioned, she heads
down a reckless path that sets off a deadly riot in the Pit and leaves her
accused of treason. Her only way of escaping public execution is to make a
truce with her prison mate, who happens to be the heir to the dictatorship and
hated enemy of the Pit. Now caught between two worlds on the brink of war,
Sunny must weigh her own survival against risking everything to save the Pit.

S.M. McEachern delivers the action
and adventure of The Hunger Games, the intrigue of The City of Ember, and the
romantic notes of Les Misérables in her debut novel set in a future that is
disturbingly plausible.

G Rating: no foul language, no
explicit sex, some mild violence.

Excerpt From Book 1, SUNSET RISING:

I found the rope and gave it a good tug to make sure it was
Here. Use this to rappel down. Ill go
first and guide you along as best I can.” I scrambled over the side and began
my descent.

Wait!” Jack’s face appeared above me, terrified. “Arent you
going to use the rope too?”

I dont need it. Ive been doing this since I was five. And besides, I dont think
that old rope is going to hold two of us.”

I climbed down about ten feet to give him room. I heard him
double- checking the rope.
Come on.”

I cant even see!”

I rolled my eyes. At this rate we were going to get caught
for sure.

Finally, he lowered himself over the side, tentatively
feeling around with one foot. I descended another ten feet and looked up to see
if he was following, but he hadn
t made any progress. Jack, youre taking too long. Trust the rope.”

You mean this old rope, Sunny?” he snapped. I bit back a laugh.

I heard him take a deep breath and watched him lean out. He
lowered one foot, then the other, and again. He continued to rappel in a slow
and steady rhythm. I descended another ten feet, thinking I probably shouldn
t be this
close. If he fell, he would take us both down.

We continued on, me staying ten feet below Jack and
encouraging him to keep going. He was painfully slow, but I tried not to get
frustrated. I remembered it was hard the first time I did it, too.

Finally, we arrived at the sixth level and I pulled myself
onto the landing.
Almost there, Jack.”

When his feet dangled just above my head, I gave them a
little tug to help him along.

Stop!” Jacks voice was edged with panic. Ill do it myself.”

I let go of him. I didnt need him screaming and bringing the
guards in here. He lowered himself far enough to reach over to the landing. I
grabbed him by the elbow and pulled him in. He hugged the side of the wall,
testing to make sure his feet were firmly on the ground.

That was the scariest thing Ive ever done in my life.”

Scariest? He had no idea. “Welcome to the Pit, Jack.”
