FLOAT PLAN by Trish Doller
ISBN 9781250767943, on sale 3/2/21
Since the loss of her fiancé, Anna has spent the last year foundering on land, shipwrecked by her grief and inability to move on. But when a reminder goes off about a trip they were supposed to take, she impulsively sets off in their sailboat, intending to complete the planned voyage around the Caribbean that Ben had mapped out for them.
But after a treacherous night’s sail and a brush with an ocean tanker, she decides she can’t do it alone and hires a professional sailor to help her get to Puerto Rico. Much like Anna, Keane is struggling with a very different future than the one he had planned, and he can’t refuse her offer. Together they find a way to rebuild their lives and the possibility of new love.
Trish Doller’s unforgettable adult debut, FLOAT PLAN, reminds readers that starting over doesn’t mean forgetting: you can build a new home, right alongside the old.
REMOTE CONTROL by Nnedi Okorafor
ISBN 9781250772800, on sale 1/19/21
An alien artifact turns a young girl into Death’s adopted daughter in this tale of community and female empowerment by BINTI‘s Nnedi Okorafor.
The day Fatima forgot her name, Death paid a visit. From here on in she would be known as Sankofa—a name that meant nothing to anyone but her, the only tie to her family and her past.
Her touch is death, and with a glance a town can fall. And she walks—alone, except for her fox companion—searching for the object that came from the sky and gave itself to her when the meteors fell and when she was yet unchanged; searching for answers.
But is there a greater purpose for Sankofa, now that Death is her constant companion?
