Summary: Sold into slavery to pirates at the young age of four, Summer learns to survive the rough seas of subterfuge and thieves through silence. When the boat she's lived on most of her life is destroyed, Summer finds herself washed up on the shore of a new world, a phantom universe full of the bizarre and extraordinary. She meets Gage, the one boy who understands the girl with no speech. But when their lives are put on the line, will Summer finally call out? Or will all be lost in the fathomless depth of silence?
Doesn't this book sound so good? Haunting? Yes, and I cannot wait to read it.
Phantom Universe, Laura Kreitzer's newest novel is released today. As she was writing her novel, Laura researched human trafficking and its psychological effects on the victim, which included sexual abuse and torture. I don't know too much about this issue and wanted to know more. To learn more. To do more. During the release week of Phantom Universe, Laura will be guest posting on various blogs to help raise awareness of human trafficking. Laura's guest post will be featured here on Thursday. I hope that you will all stop by to read it and then get a copy of Phantom Universe of your own.
