About the Author
CATHERINE LINKA was almost thrown out of boarding school for being too verbal. Fortunately, she learned to channel her outspokenness and creative energy into writing. A passionate traveler who has visited Iceland, the Amazon, and the Arctic circle, Catherine has seen five types of whales in the wild, but no orcas. Yet. She doesn't believe in fate, but she did fall in love with her husband on their first date when he laced up her boots, because she had a broken hand. A Girl Called Fearless is her debut novel.
"A deftly plotted portrait of the evolution of a teenage girl into a dystopian heroine." --Kirkus Reviews"Linka's world-building is detailed and thought-provoking, recalling aspects of Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale." --Horn Book Review "The concept of a nation mourning multiple generations of women (other countries had long since banned American meat) is gripping, and the action flows at a steady and satisfying pace, propelling readers through to the cliffhanger ending...There is something achingly vulnerable in this novel where almost everyone seems to search in vain that will likely linger with readers." --Center of Children's Books Review "Gripping, memorable, and heartrending. An ordinary girl becomes extraordinary in her fight for freedom." --C.C. Hunter, NYT bestselling author, Shadow Falls series "Breathlessly written and terrifying in its implications, Linka's debut is not only a thriller but a warning." --Gennifer Albin, author of Crewel "With a frightening reality, a forbidden romance, and a main character to root for, Fearless is a riveting read." --Megan Miranda, author of Fracture "With civil liberties on the ropes and paternalism gone rampant, it's time for a brave young heroine to ring out the news. Can it be merely coincidence that her name is Reveare?" --Tim Wynne-Jones, author of Blink & Caution "The short chapters keep the action moving in this solid selection, best for readers who enjoy plot-driven stories." --Kirkus Reviews "I find myself wanting to demand the sequel right now, this very second, to find out just what Avie has planned and what was in Sparrow's message. All in all, very dystopian, very hard (emotionally) to read and very interesting." --USA TODAY
