Seventeen-year-old Prenna James emigrated to New York when she was twelve. But Prenna didn't come from a different country, she came from a different time - a future where a mosquito-borne illness has mutated into a pandemic, killing millions and leaving the world in ruins. Prenna and the others who escaped to the present day must follow a strict set of rules: never reveal where they're from, never interfere with history, and never, ever be intimate with anyone outside their community. Prenna does as she's told, believing she can help prevent the plague that will one day ravage the earth and take the lives of her younger brothers. But everything changes when she falls for Ethan. She might be able to save the world ... if she lets go of the one thing she's found to hold on to.

Surrounded by a web of conspiracies, Reece feels that she must choose between two worlds. Her choices: David - or Amber? This world - or another? Should they tell the truth, and risk everything?

Natural Selection

Malinda Lo

I was born on Earth, not Kurra. But I'm not human, even though I try to be. My people, the Imria, think I'm unusual because of that. They call me an Earthsider: as if I've crossed a line, chosen a side. Gone native. Before she fell in love with Reese, before she knew the role she would play in the fate of two worlds, Amber was an Imrian torn between two identities. Imrian by blood, Amber was forced to hide her true self to pass as human. And even when she returns to Kurra her human experiences, including first love and heartache, still separate her from her fellow Imrians. But now she's going to experience kibila, a traditional Imrian coming-of-age ceremony during which she will choose her name - and her identity. Malinda Lo's digital-exclusive novella, companion to ADAPTATION and INHERITANCE, gives a deeper understanding of one of their most compelling characters.
