"You know that feeling when you're totally fangirling a new YA and you want more, more, more? When you discover a new author and you just can't get enough? That's how I feel after reading Elise Abram...The New Recruit is a plot-driven emotional rollercoaster."
—Maria Samurin, author
Rescuing food from the dumpster to feed the hungry, spending the weekend picking up garbage in a park, and attending peaceful protests all seem like great ways to make the world a better place but...
What if it's not enough?
When sixteen-year-old Judith meets Cain, she has no idea what she's getting herself into. Cain is the most beautiful human being Judith has ever seen, but he hides a dangerous secret. When Jo-Jo, Cain's surrogate father, offers her a job, she accepts, unaware she's been recruited as a pawn in Jo-Jo's ecoterrorist plot.
Will Judith find a way out before it's too late?
Does she have a choice?
In a time when jobs are scarce, politics are unstable, and the future is uncertain, all of us are vulnerable, willing to blindly follow a charismatic leader in exchange for the promise of a stable world view.
