Yesterday by C.K. Kelly Martin, Joins the Likes of James Dashner

By Amy Lignor

For fans of “The Maze Runner” series – the ultimate adventure and outstanding world created by author, James Dashner – this is a brand new tale that will knock your socks off!

Freya Kallas is our lead. This teenager is living in 2063 and is scared beyond belief. She and her Mom are facing evacuation because of an ecoterrorist threat. In fact, the United North America are abandoning the Coasts as a robot ‘working class’ called the Secros appear to take over the city. A Toxo has infected many and a cure cannot be found. Even Freya’s own brother, Latham, is infected and Freya is petrified he won’t make it. She has no love for her father, believing that he is a massive ‘bad guy’ in this scenario, and as she and her Mom struggle to survive…the world goes black.

It is 1985; the time of heavy metal hair, Lennon being shot, Ronald Reagan – you name it, that information is definitely inside Freya Kallas’s head. She also recalls the images of her father dying which is why she, her mom, and her sister, Olivia moved to Canada and why Freya is starting a new high school. She knows that they had been living in New Zealand before the tragedy and everyone – everyone – seems to be staring at her, calling her absolutely flawless…which she finds extremely odd. Even Mr. Popular, Seth Hardy, is after Freya and she has no idea what’s going on.

Her memories are crisp and clean, like a brand new movie, but the headaches and the foggy images stored somewhere inside her head are just screaming to get out, and Freya soon understands that the truth is she doesn’t belong. Something is most assuredly wrong and she has to find a way to fix it.

When she stumbles across a boy by the name of Garren, she finds the first ‘real’ thing she has felt in a long time. They are connected; this stranger is a part of her past, and only by each other’s side can they figure out what on earth happened.

The author has done a stunning job of mixing “The Matrix” with George Orwell’s way of thinking and produced a tale of intrigue, mystery, science fiction, fantasy and something that honestly will not be forgotten!

Until Next Time, Everybody,

Amy
