(Book 1 of The Rare Series)
A YA Dystopian Adventure trilogy that touches on teen mental health issues.
Olivia Sloane doesn’t want to live anymore. Her whole life is a struggle. Her health, her school, her social life, and even her relationship with her mother are all a mess. The world itself is a mess. With lethal acid rain and stifling, everpresent fog, nothing thrives in her home city, and it’s even worse outside—or so she’s been taught.
Her best friend, David, also has a hard life, but he has hope. He’s convinced that there’s something better hidden beyond the fence surrounding their city and has always suggested escaping together. Olivia has never taken it seriously. But after a failed suicide attempt, her stay in the mental ward leads to a series of suspicious encounters with her mother and a fight at school. Feeling like there is nothing left to lose, she decides to give David’s idea a shot.
Despite their poor health and reports of killer beasts, Olivia and David brave the wilderness. The truth they discover there—not just about their society but about themselves—is more astonishing than anything they ever imagined.

Continue the journey with Olivia and David as they try to make sense of the world around them and their new found Rare abilities!
Now that Olivia and David have discovered that their life in the city was a lie, their pursuit of the truth gives them a newfound purpose. Is there more to their Rare abilities than what they’ve discovered so far? Is there something about them that the government is trying to keep hidden?
Taken captive and tortured by her oppressors, Olivia narrowly escapes with help from an unexpected source. She rejoins what’s left of her new friends, only to find their home destroyed and coalition forces closing in to finish them off.
Running for their lives, they set out on a desperate quest to find the Haven, a mysterious city that is rumored to be harboring and protecting Rares. This journey will take them deep into the wilderness and bring them to the edges of another coalition stronghold before they find their way.
But the danger in front of them is rivaled only by the danger closing in behind them, and Olivia’s new abilities will be put to the test. As they discover more secrets, the ones they bring with them may be the most important of all.
(Book 3 or The Rare Series)
The moment Olivia’s family is finally together in Uncle Eli’s camp, violence comes between them when Matthias shoots her mother, who has proven untrustworthy too many times. But not all is lost because of her mother—with the help of Uncle Eli, they find out the rumors they have been chasing are true.
The Haven is real. Freedom is in sight. At least, it will be once David and Olivia cross the DMZ. But that’s easier said than done: assuming they don’t freeze or starve in the bleak of winter, they must survive an irradiated no-man’s-land reclaimed by the wilderness.
With Eli’s suspicious camp, the Coalition on their trail, and in-fighting among their own group, they’re running out of time and options to find a way across. What happens when Olivia and David are forced to make painful choices between ideals and safety?
