About the Author
Laura Resau is the award-winning author of nine highly acclaimed young adult and middle grade novels, including The Lightning Queen, Tree of Dreams, What the Moon Saw, Red Glass, Star in the Forest, The Queen of Water (with María Virginia Farinango), and the Notebooks series.Loved by kids and adults alike, Laura's novels have garnered many starred reviews and honors, including the International Reading Association's YA Fiction Award, the Américas Award, five Colorado Book Awards, spots on "best-of" book lists from Oprah, School Library Journal, the American Library Association, Bank Street, and more. Resau's writing has been called "vibrant, large-hearted" (Publishers' Weekly on Red Glass) and "powerful, magical" (Booklist on What the Moon Saw).You might find Laura writing in a vintage trailer in her backyard in Fort Collins or in her tiny cabin in the Rocky Mountains or on her travels in Latin America and Europe. When she's not writing, she's often wandering in the forest with her husband, cuddling with her senior rescue beagle, or head-banging (very carefully) at her teenage son's rock shows.

"An intricate race for redemption and love, Virch had me questioning my own reality in the most entertaining way. Get comfy, you won't want to put this book down!" -Leigh Statham, author of the Daughter 4254 trilogy

"Nothing is what it seems in Laura Resau's beautifully written new science fiction novel. As always, Resau deals with social issues just as deftly as she handles provocative ideas that keep the reader guessing. Highly recommend this new foray from a masterful writer." -Amy Kathleen Ryan, author of the Sky Chasers trilogy

"A whirlwind novel that combines everything I love-characters you want to root for, fiery relationships, and mind-bending concepts-into a fast-paced, lyrically written sci-fi adventure. This is a book people will be talking about." -Todd Mitchell, American Fiction Awards winning author of The Namer of Spirits

"What a cool, twisty, mind-bending novel Virch is! Laura Resau has built an immersive future world that will keep readers guessing about what's real with every page turn-and asking big questions about where our own high-tech society may be heading. High stakes, layered characters, and sweet romance round out a story readers will find impossible to put down." -Tara Dairman, author of The Girl From Earth's End

"Brimming with lyrical prose and the sweetness of first love, this sci-fi will leave you breathless and asking yourself: real or not real?" -Emily Layne, author of Of Starlight and Bone

"Virch offers a masterful blend of fast-paced adventure, epic world-building, complex relationships, and ideas that might just blow your mind-or at least your perceptions of reality! Written in beautiful yet snappy prose, Resau's novel is refreshingly engaged with the damage that greed, inequality, overabundant technology, and environmental abuse can wreak on a planet. Inhabitants of Virch's futuristic world must come to see the beauty and fleetingness of all things-and reading this book is a reminder that we must too." -Joanne Rendell, co-author of the System Divine trilogy
