Synopsis

“They told me it would be easy—just blend in, observe, and keep to myself. They didn't tell me that failure would cost me everything.”

Mira Johns is pretty much like any other teenage girl. Which is why it's a shock when she's selected ahead of six hundred other candidates to be the first student ever to travel from the planet Nreim to Earth.

Even though she’s only there to observe, she’s given what feels like a million rules that are mostly intended to keep her away from the planet’s primitive males. But after she finds one mysterious boy too irresistible for stupid rules, she realizes they have a connection that transcends their two planets—and puts both their lives in danger.

When a series of serious accidents makes it clear that someone wants to force her return, Mira decides her only hope is to uncover the truth to why she, the most mediocre of candidates, was actually chosen for this assignment—before the agency discovers her secret and sends her back home.

ExtraNormal is perfect for the YA/NA reader who likes page-turning adventures with a splash of romance and elements of sci/fi paranormal.

Note: this is a clean read with mild violence.

Teaser: Excerpt

But I could say none of that to these neo-humans. Besides, I’d ignored the cheeseburger for too long. I picked it up again and did possibly the most rebellious thing of my entire seventeen years of life. I took a bite—and moaned with pleasure. I rolled the juicy meat around in my mouth, reveling in the unfamiliar texture on my tongue. I swallowed. My tongue sought the remnants of lingering food against my teeth. I hurriedly put another bite in my mouth, tears forming in my eyes. I savored the juice that splashed against the inside of my cheek, the smooth texture of the melted cheese. Then I looked up. Three sets of eyes watched me. I grinned, realized how disgusting I must look, and clamped my mouth shut.

There's nothing normal about the new girl

Thrown [0.5]


Every competition has a loser...

The biggest competition ever on the planet Nreim is ending with an energy battle in an arena packed with more people than 17-year-old Geery has seen in one place in her lifetime. She’s beat out over 600 contestants to make the top three, an accomplishment she never expected.

She’s hardly allowed herself to dream of the prize—an assignment to Earth acting as a government agent. But now that she's at the top, she wants to win more than she thought possible.

As she prepares for battle, she learns that the judging has been based on politics more than merit, and her arrogant competitor Graseph is slated to win before the energy spar even starts. Can Geery go up against a corrupt government, and an opponent who doesn’t mind cheating, to actually win the competition?

[Published 1 October 2019, 20 pages]

About the Author

A decade ago, author Suzanne V. Reese had a string of land-mark events—published her first novel, outlined her second novel (while daydreaming in a university science class), graduated from that university, became a grandmother, and then topped it all with a late-stage breast cancer diagnosis.

That second novel, ExtraNormal, YA speculative fiction, became her therapy during a long and difficult treatment program. It was published a few years later with the encouragement of her incredibly supportive friends and family. Despite little marketing, the book quickly became an Amazon best-seller.

Suzanne then made the difficult decision to ensure her long-term existence by focusing on her health rather than continue with the series. Happily, to celebrate her ten-year survival and end-of-treatment mark, she is releasing an updated version of the best-selling novel ExtraNormal, this time to be soon followed by the remaining books in the ExtraNormal Chronicles.

Suzanne has a degree in communications from Utah State University, as well as certifications in nutrition and holistic health. She is the founder of Story Igniters, which offers courses that help readers find their real-life superpowers. She lives with her husband in Draper, Utah, where she enjoys doting on her seven grandchildren.
