A Glimpse into Ending Fear’s World: A Visual Blog Tour
Today is all about Deanna Fugett’s YA dystopian debut novel, Ending Fear! It comes out on July 18th. I’ve heard good things about this story, and I now have the pleasure of showing you some visual peeks into Fear’s world accompanied by some words from Deanna!
At the end of this post you will find a scavenger hunt clue, a link to Ending Fear’s Facebook release party (Fun stuff!), and a bit about Deanna herself.
Before we get to the photos, here is the back cover copy:
Fourteen-year-old Fear learns she was a parachute baby, dumped over the edge of the
Gliding Lands as an infant. Fascinated by the floating cities in the sky before, now she’s
desperate for answers. But a slave isn’t likely to get those answers.
When her abusive Downer family throws her from their hovel, Fear takes refuge with a
family who shows her love for the first time. Surely they can’t be trusted. Years of abuse
and molestation has taught her that.
Then her brother discovers where she’s hiding and tries to kidnap her. Fear will never let
him touch her again. Her new family conceals her at The Fallen, a ranch that hides
parachute babies from the Uppers who discarded them.
Just as she’s beginning to embrace yet another home, Fear’s new little sister, Happy, is
kidnapped and taken to the Uppers’ temple harem. Fear must go against her namesake, find
a working hoverpod, and journey to the dreaded Gliding Lands before the little girl’s
innocence is ripped from her forever.
Can she save Happy in time?
And will she find answers to the burning question of why anyone would throw her away?
Fear lived in the hovels. Not the most pleasant place you’d ever care to live.
See, this was where she lived. Not super great, huh?
This is where she lives now. Much better, I’d say. Not to mention the people who live inside.
(Let me give you a hint. They’re a lot nicer.)
The Downers go here when they’ve been naughty. Moral of the story: don’t be naughty.
Fear’s love for a majestic horse named Pumpkin isn’t a secret. Someday she’ll find a way to ride
Fear doesn’t want to stay here. But the Fallen is the only place where she can hide away.
The Uppers have it a lot better than the Downers. Can you tell?
The Uppers even have helper robots so they don’t have to do stuff themselves. Pretty convenient.
These are the stairs leading to the treacherous temple. The Uppers walk these stairs in
anticipation of things to come. Fear walks these stairs concerned they may be the path to her
Uppers have Electro-Screens. Some are implanted in the Upper’s heads, and are some that can be
pulled out of thin air, and even some old fashioned ones left where the Downers live. Those ones
are not invisible but they are usually tucked in somewhere, camouflaged and hard to see.
Electro-screens have a variety of uses and purposes. Some are for communication, some for
entertainment or sustenance purposes. Some can even play music! And some can do it all.
Ending Fear is having a Facebook launch party on July 20th, 7-9 PM MST!
