I am finally ready to introduce my newest WIP, Breathe!
But wait, what about your other WIP?
Don’t worry. I haven’t flushed it down the toilet. Because of my current skill level, I’ve decided to take a break from Never Forget and come back to it later. It may end up being a novel, a novella, or a short story. We’ll see!
But for now, I’m focusing on Breathe, a science fiction YA (young adult) novel.
This project is still very early in its development, so I will not be posting too many snippets. To introduce my novel, I decided to share a story summary with you all. I hope you enjoy!
After a series of risky, dangerous surgeries that almost cost her her life, Apryl is the first human to live permanently underwater.
For nearly ten years, she has lived in a tank in the laboratory of Dr. Kacper Morgan, a cruel scientist who hopes to become the richest man in the country through his experiments. After years of being treated like nothing, Apryl’s ready to give up hope that she’ll ever be able to leave. When her only friend in the lab, Dr. Morgan’s second-in-command, Zandra, comes up with a plan to get her out, her life suddenly flips around. Dr. Jones, a respected, kind-hearted scientist and his son Noah have agreed to break Apryl out and transfer her to Dr. Jones’ lab. While attempting to rescue her, their plans are hindered again and again. Apryl begins to doubt that she will ever be anything more than a science experiment, and wonders if she will ever survive outside of a lab. As the struggle to break Apryl free continues, Apryl discovers the greatest, truest form of love there is: sacrifice.
