No Turning Back by Kim Flowers

OUT NOW! No Turning Back by Kim Flowers

The punishment for a seventh-grade dropout runaway is probably pretty harsh, but Ash Barker doesn’t care. She can’t waste time or emotions on anyone but her brother, Matt. They were placed in separate foster homes, so Ash runs away to find him. If she fails, she’s headed back to juvenile detention.

Everything is going right on schedule until two kids, Dayna and Kevin, barge into her hideout — which just happens to be in their house. She ditches the pair fast, but can’t stop thinking about those bruised, skinny kids.

Dayna and Kevin live with abusive parents who force them to stay in their room most of the time. If they go to the authorities for help, they’ll be split up, too. Ash knows how that feels, and she goes back to help, taking the two with her. With any luck, they’ll all help each other along the way.

Meanwhile, as Matt waits for Ash, he can’t resist telling his foster brother and best friend, Jon-Allen, about the plans. They stash food, earn money, and keep watch for the night Ash appears at their bedroom window.

Ash is so happy to be reunited with Matt and to discover she’s falling in love with Dayna that, at first, she doesn’t worry about what they’ll do next. But life on the road begins to take its toll — they have to resort to shoplifting and scavenging to survive. Ash feels a growing sense of guilt at the disaster she’s made of everyone’s lives. Can she somehow keep her newfound “family” together despite hunger and sickness? Or will she be able to find the strength to reach out for help?

Amelia’s Revolution by Kim Flowers

OUT NOW! Amelia’s Revolution by Kim Flowers

In this alternate version of history, Amelia and her father, the governor of Delaware, attend a formal dinner at the capitol building with several other local leaders to meet with a delegate for Queen Victoria. The delegate declares the United States must sign a treaty with Britain to reinstate colonial rule, or else there will be war. Amelia runs away to warn the rest of the town, but not before she sees the most beautiful girl on earth. To Amelia’s horror, the beautiful girl is one of the British delegate’s slaves.

Slavery had been abolished in the U.S. two generations ago, after the American Revolution. Automatons do the manual labor now, and all of the melting-pot cultures in the nation live in harmony. But in Britain there are still slaves, and gender-queer people are persecuted. Amelia knows she can’t allow any treaty with Britain to be signed. She sneaks to the harbor of their coastal capital city and discovers not only the delegate’s ship, but an armada on the horizon. She also sees the beautiful girl from before . . . and learns her name is Nadine.

Amelia, her best friend Two-Spirit, and Nadine must organize a rebellion involving slaves, Lenni-Lenape warriors, automatons, and a mechanical horse cavalry. Will they be able to stop the British Imperial Navy? And will Amelia win Nadine’s heart if she can help her become free?

NOTE: The story is continued in the collection, Revolt of the Perfectly Free.
