Product Details


“A gripping adventure.”

“Survivor meets James Bond in this page-turning mix of realism and science fiction.”
Voice of Youth Advocates

“Enthralling and filled with suspense…”
School Library Journal

“Khoury builds a relentless plot and seeds the narrative with a deadly mystery that echoes themes of her first novel, Origin (2012). The science-fiction elements and setting evoke Jurassic Park‘s themes of human meddling in nature, while touches of teen angst and love keep the book realistic and broaden the appeal.”

“Khoury keeps the tension throughout with life-threatening moments and narrow escapes…a true adventure story in an unusual setting.” 
School Library Connection Reviews

“A blend of survival/adventure, sci-fi, and first love, KALAHARI is grounded in the resourceful courage of a girl raised in the African bush. Thrilling, unpredictable, irresistible . . . six teenagers in dire straits, and the suspense never lets up. Readers will flock to Jessica Khoury’s masterful prose and storytelling.”
–Will Hobbs, award-winning author of Far North  and Never Say Die
