Here’s the cover art and synopsis of the upcoming young adult novel Glaze by Kim Curran, coming May 2014 from Jurassic London. There will also be a limited edition run of 75 copies.
First, the synopsis:
PETRI QUINN is counting down the days till she turns 16 and can get on GLAZE – the ultimate social network that is bringing the whole world together into one global family. But when a peaceful government protest turns into a full-blown riot with Petri shouldering the blame, she’s handed a ban. Her life is over before it’s even started.
Desperate to be a part of the hooked-up society, Petri finds an underground hacker group and gets a black-market chip fitted. But this chip has a problem: it has no filter and no off switch. Petri can see everything happening on GLAZE, all the time. Including things she was never meant to see.
As her life is plunged into danger, Petri is faced with a choice. Join GLAZE… or destroy it.
Glaze is a new novel from innovative young adult author Kim Curran (Shift): a combination of astute technological insight, uneasy social commentary and brilliant adventure.
