Hey all! Kirsten Hubbard here. I'm excited to finally share a little bit about my next book with Disney-Hyperion, RACE THE NIGHT.
On windy, hazy days, it wasn't hard to believe the desert ranch was the only thing left. A planet in a universe of empty space. Leaving it was like stepping off the earth into the night sky. Not something anybody in her right mind would ever do...RACE THE NIGHT will be published by Disney-Hyperion on November 8th, 2016 -- one year from today. It's the result of years of desert explorations, and if you know me, it's probably no surprise my favorite settings have been the most post-apocalyptic.
RACE THE NIGHT is a companion novel to WATCH THE SKY, about a 12-year-old girl named Eider who lives in a desert compound after the end of the world. It's about wind-gifted papers, fairytales in the floorboards, broken robots and imaginary sisters. Most of all, it's about the moment a lifetime of desert sameness becomes something different – something more.
You don't need to have read WATCH THE SKY to enjoy RACE THE NIGHT. But it will definitely enhance the experience :)
