We Are Savages is the story of 12 year old Tris and what she finds when she runs from the responsibility of her household and descends through a rain grate into the child run world of Nowhere. "You go to bed angry or sad enough you can wake up just about anywhere," the Savages tell her. Nowhere is a brick utopia hidden in the sewers; made up of sweets, sports, hammocks, and fireflies. But even this haven, free of parents and protocol, is not everything it seems. Haunted by dark specters known only as Phocydes, feared for their reputation of consuming children whole, Tris works both to hunt and to hide from these hooded shadows. But something about them is familiar; something about them fires her curiosity more than her fear. And Tris slowly begins to realize that, no matter where you go, fear and responsibility are not things you can escape. The only thing to do is face them.

About the Author:

Jessie Atkin lives in Upstate, NY, and attended Washington University in St. Louis. She received a B.A. in English Literature. Besides reading, she was also involved in theater during college, working as an assistant stage manager and even trying her hand at acting in a single show. Jessie learned to read later than most, but her sudden ability coincided with the release of the first Harry Potter book in 1998, and an obsession was born. Aside from Harry Potter, she also learned to love comic books, with a particular affinity for superheroes. Other than young adult fiction, Jessie also writes plays in her free time. We Are Savages is her debut novel.

Review:

"This is a solid YA novel with a gripping plot and a strong female protagonist at its center."
-Publishers Weekly*

"It's a rare young writer who can bring such intense energy, quick-wittedness, and clearly defined characters to life on the page."
-Gina Barreca, author of It's Not That I'm Bitter and Babes in Boyland

"Jessie Atkin has written a beautiful coming of age story told through the eyes and heart of a 'tween,' making it completely relate-able for younger readers with enough action and fantasy to fuel their minds and pull them into the story"
- Reviewed by Dianne Bylo for Readers' Favorite
