While You Were Gone (Duplexity #2)
August 04, 2015
An artist without a cause meets a rebel without a clue, and together they learn to stand up for what's right in the gripping conclusion to the half sci-fi half romance Duplexity duology: WHILE YOU WERE GONE by Amy K. Nichols (Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers | On sale August 4, 2015 | Ages 12 and up). Told with alternating perspectives, WHILE YOU WERE GONE explores the chaos theory, time travel, and their philosophical implications, and is a riveting read for both teens and adults. Eevee is a promising young artist and the governor's daughter in a city where censorship is everywhere and security is everything. When a fire devastates her exhibition--years in the making--her dreams of attending an elite art institute are dashed. She's struggling to find inspiration when she meets Danny. Raised in a foster home, Danny's life has always been full of hurt and hardship--until a glitch in the universe changes everything. Suddenly Danny is living in a home he's never seen with the parents he's never known. It's like he's a new Danny--but this alternate self has secrets--ties to an underground anarchist group that have already landed him in hot water. When he starts to develop feelings for Eevee he's even more disturbed to learn that he might have started the fire that ruined her work. As Danny sifts through clues from his past and Eevee attempts to piece together her future, they uncover a secret that's bigger than both of them. Together, they must correct the breach between the worlds before it's too late.
