|From The Publisher*||In Rich Larson's astonishing debut Annex, only outsiders Violet and Bo-a trans girl and a young Nigerian immigrant-can fight off the true aliens.|
At first it is a nightmare. When the invaders arrive, the world as they know it is destroyed. Their friends are kidnapped. Their families are changed.
Then it is a dream. With no adults left to run things, Violet and the others who have escaped capture are truly free for the first time. They can do whatever they want to do. They can be whoever they want to be.
But the invaders won't leave them alone for long...
This thrilling debut by one of the most acclaimed short form writers in science fiction tells the story of a young trans girl who must find a way to fight back against the aliens who have taken over her city.
