The first in a thrilling new trilogy of epic proportions from best-selling children's author Thalia Kalkipsakis. A fresh take on the time tripping genre, The Lifespan of Starlight is Gattaca meets The Time Traveler's Wife. It already lies dormant within you: the ability to move within time. In 2084, three teenagers discover the secret to time travel. At first their jumps cover only a few seconds, but soon they master the technique and combat their fear of jumping into the unknown. It's dangerous. It's illegal. And it's utterly worth it for the full-body bliss of each return. As their ability to time jump grows into days and weeks, the group begins to push beyond their limits, with terrifying consequences. Could they travel as far as ten years, to escape the authorities? They are desperate enough to find out. But before they jump they must sure, because it only works in one direction. Once you trip forwards, there's no coming back.

About the Author

In her own words, Thalia tells us a little more about Lifespan of Starlight and what to expect from this epic new trilogy! 1. Why are people going to love the story? Computer hacking, secret identity, a police chase, friendship, betrayal, a first kiss, the full body bliss after a time skip, and a mystery that isn't solved until book 3. Readers of contemporary fiction will relate to Scout's authentic voice, her determination and her reactions to the people around her. Some parts might be sci fi, but the characters are not. 2. Without giving away too much, tell us what's next in store for Scout (in the next two books)? Base jumping, deeper friendships, second chances, a massive firestorm, the benefits of being illegal, hope in the face of diminishing resources, sacrifice, disappointment, the truth about the ration system and, above all, the power of love. 3. In the movie adaptation, who would play the main character, Scout? Saoirse Ronan - I had to look up her name (she's in the Lovely Bones and the Host). I think she's a great actress and really suits the way Scout looks/moves in my mind.
