"Theyâ€™re known as Firestarters. Boomers. Skychangers. The government calls them Illegals â€” children with inexplicable abilities â€” and detains them in menacing facilities so that society is kept out of harmâ€™s way. Ashala Wolf and her Tribe of fellow Illegals have taken refuge in the Firstwood, a forest eerily conscious of its inhabitants, where they do their best to survive and where they are free to practice their abilities. But when Ashala is compelled to venture outside her territory, she is betrayed by a friend and captured by an enemy. Injured and vulnerable, with her own Sleepwalker ability blocked, Ashala is forced to succumb to a machine that will pull secrets from her mind.
"Itâ€™s only a matter of time before the machine ferrets out the location of the Tribe. Her betrayer, Justin Connor, is ever-present, saving her life when she wishes to die and watching her every move. Will the Tribe survive The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf?

Every day during the month of October, I'm going to add a book to this page that either features a Black main character or a book by a Black author. I will also add the book to the Alien Star Books Facebook group.
Speculative fiction includes science fiction, space opera, fantasy, urban fantasy, steamfunk, dieselfunk, horror, and more! If your teen or YA reader is looking for something different in his/her preferred speculative fiction genre, I can promise that he/she is going to enjoy the next 31 days!
