This is the eleventh day of my “The Twelve Books of Christmas” blog series. Each day through December 12 I showcase a book written by a Colorado author who lives in the Fort Collins area. Please spread the Support Local Businesses love by purchasing a book by a local author at a local bookstore. That way your purchase will put a smile on everyone’s face.
Two independent bookstores that I recommend in Fort Collins are: Old Firehouse Books in Old Town, and Reader’s Cove on Harmony Rd. You can also find books at JAX Outdoor Gear on North College, Clothes Pony in Old Town, and the Northern Colorado Writers Studio at 108 East Monroe Dr. (Across from Tres Margaritas). Ask if they have any autographed copies in stock.

Sixteen years ago, Waverly and Kieran were the first children born in space. Now a perfect couple, they are the pride and joy of the whole spaceship. They represent the future. The ship is their entire world. They have never seen a stranger before.
Old Earth is crumbling, and the crew is hoping to reach (and colonise) New Earth within fifty years. Along with their allies on the second spaceship – who set off a year before them and whom they have never met. One day, Kieran proposes to Waverly. That same morning, the ‘allies’ attack – and Kieran and Waverly are separated in the cruellest way possible. Will they ever see each other again?
Amy Kathleen Ryan is the acclaimed author of VIBES, ZEN AND XANDER UNDONE, and GLOW, the opening salvo in the SKY CHASERS series, which has been chosen by School Library Journal as a Best Book of 2011.
