Vanessa has been reaching for the stars since she was a little girl, and is determined to get into her dream Ivy League university to study astronomy.
Zach is a talented artist, but he’s not even thinking about college. He needs to stay home and support his family, working on the same oil rig where his dad was killed in an accident.
Their future looks poles apart… but then again, opposites attract.
A gorgeous romance about that special person who changes everything – perfect for fans of Jennifer Niven and Nicola Yoon.
As the sun sets off the coast of the small California town of Orilla del Cielo, you can see the silhouettes of the oil rigs. Their shadows look jarring against the serene backdrop, their sharpness a reminder of unfulfilled promises. To Zach, they are a reminder of loss - his father, an oil worker who drowned years before. With a poor family struggling to make ends meet, Zach's future feels equally bleak. Until he meets Vanessa, an optimistic girl whose sights are literally set on the stars. Inspired by her idol, Carl Sagan, she plans to study astronomy at Cornell. But as oil prospectors in search of black gold know, the future is uncertain - and fortunes can always be flipped. Jason Gurley delivers a gorgeous debut young adult novel about dreams and believing in love - and yourself - to reach them.

He remembers video games. His mother's cooking. His father's awkward sense of humor. He remembers air conditioning and warm beds and graduation. But all of that was before the end of the world. Now he is a survivor, one of them - part of a roving clan of killers that combs through the ruined neighborhoods and towns, looking for things to steal, men to butcher, women to enslave and abuse. Then he meets a woman who could kill him without blinking, and together they escape the world that was...
She's only the house-sitter. Alice Quayle lives on the space station Argus. She wakes to the sun breaking over Africa. She keeps watch over the experiments. She makes sure the station doesn't explode. And she's the only occupant of the space station when the world far below her comes apart in flame.
He doesn't remember the days before the sickness. He only knows the world since it went bad. The empty towns. The rusted-out cars. The corpses, everywhere. He doesn't know why he rides the rails. He just does. The trains never take him away from the ruin. The trains never take him anywhere. Until one day they carry him to a little town called Black Hole, Kentucky, and he meets a strange woman who knows him. Who knows everything.

This is a short story for every father who never wants his daughter to grow up.
Book 1 of The Movement Trilogy Earth is on the brink of ruin. Great storms destroy cities. Rising seas reshape the continents. Afraid for its survival, mankind constructs a fleet of space stations in orbit, and steps off-world. Among the humans fighting for their future are Micah Sparrow, a widower who uncovers a plot to return mankind to the dark ages; Tasneem Kyoh, who undergoes life-extension treatments and begins the search for humanity's next home; and David Dewbury, a prodigy who believes he knows where that home might be. But in space, the rules aren't the only things that have changed. Man himself has changed, and with the Earth in tatters behind him, man turns his attention to the one thing left to destroy: himself. The Settlers is the explosive first book in Jason Gurley's Movement Trilogy, the epic story of man's small step into space, and the great leaps humanity must make to save its own future.
Book 2 of The Movement Trilogy Earth has become an artifact of history. Children are no longer taught that it is the birthplace of mankind. For them, history begins with the Citadel, the enormous institution that governs the system with a heavy, vicious fist. Three hundred years have passed since the events of Book 1. The Machine class, oppressed and broken, has scattered throughout the system, building outposts and colonies on every surface they can find. They rely upon the Onyx class, the privileged ones, for sustenance. But the most brutal attack in human history relights the fuse of war between the two classes, and rebellions break out on every moon, planet and rock between Earth and the stars. And somewhere in the chaos, Tasneem Kyoh and David Dewbury still fight for mankind's future... a new Earth, and a new beginning. The Colonists, the second title in Jason Gurley's Movement Trilogy, continues the epic story of humanity's greatest struggle, and its desperate battle with its most powerful enemy: itself.
