My name is Hope Arden, and you won't know who I am. We've met before -- a thousand times. I am the girl the world forgets. It started when I was sixteen years old. A slow declining, an isolation, one piece at a time. A father forgetting to drive me to school. A mother setting the table for three, not four. A teacher who forgets to chase my missing homework. A friend who looks at me and sees a stranger. No matter what I do, the words I say, the people I hurt, the crimes I commit -- you will never remember who I am. That makes my life difficult. It also makes me dangerous . . . This is the tale of a girl no one remembers, yet her story will stay with you forever.

About the Author:

Claire North is the pseudonym for Catherine Webb, a Carnegie Medal-nominated author whose first book, Mirror Dreams,was written when she was just fourteen years old. She went on to write numerous other young adult novels, and has also penned several successful fantasy novels for adultsin the Matthew Swift and Magicals Anonymous series -- under the pseudonym Kate Griffin.

Review:

"North has established a reputation for tense, dense, science fiction/fantasy-inflected thrillers that defy facile explanations... Simultaneously a tense conspiracy caper, a haunting meditation on loneliness and a brutally cynical examination of modern media... Well-paced, brilliant and balanced."―New York Times on The Sudden Appearance of Hope

"Beautifully written, with a protagonist who is both tragic and heroic, the novel is remarkably powerful and deeply memorable, the latest in a string of terrific books from this newly emerged star in the genre-blending universe."
Booklist (starred review) on The Sudden Appearance of Hope


"[T]his is an inquiry into modern human existence. Philosophical questions are threaded through the electrifying plot. Even the protagonist's darkness alias is "why." Reminiscent of William Gibson's best work, North leads us into a brilliant world of elite but mindless humans, and shines a sharp light on what a rare gift it is to be able to think for oneself and what the consequences of it are."―RT Book Reviews on The Sudden Appearance of Hope

"The experience of sitting with it, sinking into it, aching along with Hope as her loneliness shapes and breaks her, was wonderful, painful and moving."
NPR on The Sudden Appearance of Hope


"Startlingly original"―Independent (UK) on The Sudden Appearance of Hope

"North isn't here to lecture you or rehash tired debates. Instead, she's produced something that feels at the same time absent and necessary: Smart, compelling fiction about this future that asks us to outsource ever-larger chunks of our selves to the cloud."
Tech Insider on The Sudden Appearance of Hope

"This is a book which is incredibly compelling, and incredibly heartbreaking at times. I could not put it down."
The Forest of Books on The Sudden Appearance of Hope


"Seriously I cannot get over how amazingly good Claire North is. I could have read this book forever. The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August was so smart, Touch is beyond genius. This will be one of THE books of 2015. Mark my words."―Bite the Book (Australia) on Touch

"Touch is a story within a story within a story and it's one of the cleverest, most compelling books I've read in a long time. The intoxicating voice, ingenious premise and intricate plot will have readers clamoring for a copy. Touch has bestseller written all over it and Claire North is one hell of a writer."―C. L. Taylor, author of The Accident on Touch

"I don't say this lightly but The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August is one of the top ten books I've ever read."―James Dashner, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Maze Runner on The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August

"An astonishing re-invention of the time travel narrative. Bold, magical and masterful."―M.R. Carey, on The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August

"Wonderful novel...held together by a compelling mystery involving nothing less than the end of the world itself. Beautifully written and structured...a remarkable book."―Booklist (Starred Review) on The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August

"A subtle study of friendship, love and the complexity of existence."―Eric Brown, Guardian on The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August
