That’s ZITA THE SPACE GIRL in Spanish, and she’s coming out soon under the new Astronave imprint from Norma Editorial.
Here’s a peek at the super promo pack the publishers are sending to booksellers that just arrived today.
Yep, those are packs of special Zita gummy stars! (But they’re too cute to eat.)
An alien abduction has left behind only those younger than sixteen, older than sixty-five, or too “disabled” to work. In other words, people who weren’t a threat—until now. Twins Sam and Wyatt are ready to chuck their labels, break free from their captors, and inspire others to do the same. It’s time for “the last picked” to step into the game.
Vivid world-building and a fast-paced adventure mix in a beautiful story of sibling devotion. With humor and action, Last Pick shares an empowering message about the dangers of labeling and writing people off.
(First of three books with book 2 in Fall 2019.)
★”A masterful sci-fi tale with relatable characters, skillful worldbuilding, and cinematically designed illustrations that convey his message.”—Kirkus Review, starred review
★”Strong character development, atmospheric art, villainous aliens, snappy banter, cheerworthy protagonists, and well-executed suspense should give this lots of broad appeal.” —Booklist, starred review
