Into the Shadows by Karly Kirkpatrick
Paivi Anderson has it all—friends, a spot on the varsity basketball team, wonderful parents, and quite possibly, her first boyfriend. It was everything a freshman in high school could ask for. Her perfect life begins to crumble when she discovers her name on a list distributed by a power-hungry presidential candidate. How could anyone think of Paivi as an Enemy of the State? Could it be because of her special powers? No one was supposed to know about them, but the mysterious messages in her tater tots say otherwise. In INTO THE SHADOWS, Paivi quickly learns who her friends are and is forced into a reality she didn’t see coming.
Author Bio: From Karly's blog: "I've loved books as long as I can remember and I've been writing silly things (like notes, letters, diary entries, lame teen-angsty poems and a ga-gillion story ideas) since I learned to use a pencil. I decided one fine summer day that maybe I should give one of my many story ideas a chance. I wrote my first YA novel in 2007-2008 and have since added a picture book, screenplay for a short film, more YA novels, and a plethora of flash fiction (short stories).
I recently attended DePaul University and took grad classes in Writing and Publishing. I'll be starting screenwriting classes at the UCLA Extension Writer's Program this summer. I'm also a member of DarkSide and the Indelibles. I teach German and French at a high school or two in the suburbs of Chicago when I'm not writing. A lot of my characters come straight out of my everyday life. I live with my awesome teacher/law student husband, amazing daughter, and two occasionally stinky Shih Tzus in beautiful Elgin, Illinois."
