In a stunning reimagining of history, debut author Caroline Tung Richmond weaves an incredible story of secrets and honor in a world where Hitler won World War II.It's been nearly 80 years since the Allies lost WWII in a crushing defeat against Hitler's genetically engineered super soldiers. America has been carved up by the victors, and 16-year-old Zara lives a life of oppression in the Eastern America Territories. Under the iron rule of the Nazis, the government strives to maintain a master race, controlling everything from jobs to genetics. Despite her mixed heritage and hopeless social standing, Zara dreams of the free America she's only read about in banned books. A revolution is growing, and a rogue rebel group is plotting a deadly coup. Zara might hold the key to taking down the Führer for good, but it also might be the very thing that destroys her. Because what she has to offer the rebels is something she's spent her entire life hiding, under threat of immediate execution by the Nazis. In this action-packed, heart-stopping novel of a terrifying reality that could have been, Zara must decide just how far she'll go for freedom.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 29, 2014 – Richmond makes an impressive debut with this alternate history, which sees a 16-year-old half-Japanese girl growing up in the Nazi-dominated Eastern half of the United States, decades after Germany won WWII through the use of genetically engineered superhumans. Zara St. James, constantly subjected to prejudice and discrimination, is hiding a secret: she, too, is an Anomaly, with the power to control wind. Though she wants to join the rebel Alliance, her uncle believes it too dangerous for her. Events spiral out of control when the Nazis crack down on potential rebels and sympathizers, forcing Zara to reveal her powers while teaming up with a surprising ally the privileged son of a high-ranking German official. Readers will be able to detect shades of Katniss in this story of a brave and resourceful young woman who inadvertently becomes the poster child for rebellion. But Richmond twists history and throws in creative exploitation of superpowers to deliver a fast-paced adventure that incorporates romantic themes without being overly reliant on them. Ages 12 up.
