While We Run by Karen Healey [SAMPLE]

It's 2127, and the future is at stake . . .

Abdi Taalib thought he was moving to Australia for a music scholarship. But after meeting the beautiful and brazen Tegan Oglietti, his world was turned upside down. Tegan's no ordinary girl - she died in 2027, only to be frozen and brought back to life in Abdi's time, 100 years later.

Now, all they want is for things to return to normal (or as normal as they can be), but the government has other ideas. Especially since the two just spilled the secrets behind Australia's cryonics project to the world. On the run, Abdi and Tegan have no idea who they can trust - and, when they uncover startling new details about the program, they realize that thousands of lives may be in their hands.

Karen Healey offers a suspenseful, page-turning companion to When We Wake that will keep readers on the edge of their seats and make them call into question their own ideas about morality -- and mortality, too.

CHAPTER ONE
Sanguinante
They always wanted me to sing “Here Comes the Sun.”It used to be one of my favorite Beatles songs. The lyrics capture so simply the longing for light. The singer talks about the cold, the ice that hasn’t melted in a long time, but he repeats over and over that the sun is coming soon.In 1969, over a hundred and ifty years ago, George Harri‑son was having a hard winter. He’d been arrested, he’d had his tonsils removed, and he was being forced to comply with the corporate demands of the Beatles’ record company. He’d even temporarily quit the band.Then, one winter’s day, he walked around a friend’s back‑yard with an acoustic guitar and wrote “Here Comes the Sun.”It’s supposed to be a love song, and I know the audiences heard it as one. But to me it’s not about romance. If anything, its a dedication to hope, to the fragile, delicate possibility of things getting better before the long winter swallows us all.
