Soul Beach is the first title to be launched as part of Orion's new YA imprint, Indigo. It's by Kate Harrison, who has previously written adult novels, and is a brilliant thriller with many an intriguing twist. I've read it myself and really enjoyed it - it's creepy and unusual, and it made me think about the internet and this virtual life we've all become so accustomed to.
Here's a bit more information from Amazon:
When Alice Forster receives an email from her dead sister she assumes it must be a sick practical joke. Then an invitation arrives to the virtual world of Soul Beach, an idyllic online paradise of sun, sea and sand where Alice can finally talk to her sister again - and discover a new world of friendships, secrets and maybe even love . . . . But why is Soul Beach only inhabited by the young, the beautiful and the dead? Who really murdered Megan Forster? And could Alice be next?
Soul Beach is published on September 1st, 2011, and I'm very excited to be debuting the trailer. Click here to see it or watch the video below. Take a look and let me know what you think!
