  About The Book

My name is Tegan Oglietti, and on the last day of my first lifetime, I was so, so happy.


16-year-old Tegan is just like every other girl living in 2027-she's happiest when playing the guitar, she's falling in love for the first time, and is joining with her friends to protest the wrongs of the world: environmental collapse, social discrimination, and political injustice.

But on what should have been the best day of Tegan's life, she dies-and wakes up 100 years in the future, locked in a government facility with no idea of what happened.

Tegan is the first government guinea pig to be cryogenically frozen and successfully revived, which makes her an instant celebrity-even though all Teeg wants to do is try and rebuild some semblance of a normal life. But the future isn't all she hoped it would be, and when appalling secrets come to light, Tegan must make a choice: does she keep her head down and survive, or fight for a better future?

Award-winning author Karen Healey has created a haunting, cautionary tale of an inspiring protagonist living in a not-so-distant future that could easily be ours.

  Praise

Praise for The Shattering:

* "Juggling multiple viewpoints, Healey skillfully keeps her characters on an emotional roller-coaster even as they deal with physical threats. The climax delivers a gut punch that only underscores the sensitivity of the subject matter (without lessening the thrill at all)."
Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Healey...seamlessly integrates noir and fantasy tropes to explore issues of suicide, trust, sexuality, race, insecurity and free will in a way that feels fresh." Kirkus
