DIVERGENT meets OCEAN’S EIGHT in this urban fantasy heist!
On my seventeenth birthday, I wake up in the hospital to find I just survived a sketchy but terrible accident. My parents stand by my bedside—both are beautiful, wealthy, and super-nice. They tell me that once I leave the hospital, I’ll attend the prestigious ECHO Academy, where I’ll churn out equations for the government along with my mega-smart peers.
So, I’m living the perfect life.
Then why does everything feel all wrong?
My parents, my house and even ECHO Academy…none of it fits. Plus, what’s up with Thorne, my brooding yet yummy classmate who keeps telling me I need to remember my true past, which seems to have included a lot of us kissing? That’s one thing I’d really like to remember, except for the fact that I’m pretty sure Thorne is hiding a ton of nasty secrets of his own, including the fact that he may not be from this world. But considering how my own past seems alien to me, it’s not like I can judge. Plus, Thorne has dimples. That’s a problem.
And worst of all, why does it feel so yucky to work on these calculations for the government? It’s all supposed to be part of ECHO, but my heart tells me that I’m helping something truly terrible come to pass. Thorne seems to think that kissing him again will release my real memories.
Maybe it’s time to pucker up.

Top 5 things we should know about Meimi before reading ALIEN MINDS
By Christina Bauer
As part of the launch tour for my new book, ALIEN MINDS, the lovely folks at Bibliobibuli YA asked me to share the top five things to know about the main character, Meimi Archer.
So without further ado, here are my top five Meimi facts!
Fact Five. Meimi lives in a dystopian version of Boston.
In this future, Boston is a domed city, meaning that it’s safe and non-toxic and all that good stuff. outside of a dome, most of the continent is a shit show. Ruins. Toxic sludge. You get the idea.
Fact Four. The Authority runs the show.
About twenty years ago, the Authority ousted the government of the United Americas. They’re obsessed with purity in citizens and they purge anyone who doesn’t meet their standards. And yes, purging means what you think it does. Murder.
Fact Three. Meimi’s Mother is slated for cleansing.
Rose Archer used to be a top researcher in drift science, but she’s been slowly turning catatonic over the years. To protect her mom, Meimi moves out to Western Massachusetts and lives off grid in an abandoned factory. Which leads to..
Fact Two. Meimi is a science genius.
Meimi’s mother taught our heroine tons about drift science, and Meimi uses those skills to do build science gizmos for the local crime lord.
Fact one. Meimi is also a geek.
Meimi is a wizard when it comes to drift science, but she’s super awkward around guys her age. In fact, she’s not comfortable around anyone but her best friends, Chloe and Zoe. That is, until a hottie extraterrestrial enters Meimi’s life. And so the story goes!
So there you have it: my top five facts about Meimi Archer. I hope you enjoyed this list and I hope to return on a future book launch!
Christina Bauer thinks that fantasy books are like bacon: they just make life better. All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too.
Christina graduated from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School with BA’s in English along with Television, Radio, and Film Production. She lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby.
