Rumer, a petite apprentice reporter for the 31st century Global Quotidien with a flair for fashion, loves zipping across Nanjing with her loyal sidekick, Qix, in search of stories. But now, she’s furious with her boss for asking her to cover the exploits of Alfa, the planet’s wealthiest mega-conglomerate. Her parents died in an Alfa accident and she can’t understand how he can be so insensitive. She escapes into the indie networks and soon finds herself puzzling over an image of a bizarre nature sighting. Ever since the flora and fauna were replaced with Alfa’s Syncov™ replicas eons earlier, sightings like this have been routinely dismissed. When ethereal voices relay a message confirming Rumer’s hunch that things are terribly amiss, she slips away on a globe-trotting quest for answers. An epic battle is brewing between Dr. BigCo, the powerful Alfa CEO, and his nemesis, MoNa, the vulnerable matriarch of the cosmos. Will Rumer be able to turn things around before it’s too late?

Rumer & Qix was an all too enjoyable fantasy thrill ride. Who knew that ecological issues could be so entertaining? Readers can't help but think twice about this world we live in. -- Ready Set Read Reviews, 2/11/10
Set 1000 years in the future, Kathleen Wilson paints an interesting view of what life on earth may be like. This book is sure to appeal to the young adult reader, and also fans of the fantasy genre. --Simon Barrett, Blogger News Network, 7/6/09
This book is perfect for a tween/teen that's into sci-fi. Rumer goes on her journey to try to find the real Earth that is hidden under the Syncov [the fake stuff]. Definitely a different story, but fun to read! --Not Your Everyday Mommy, 10/23/09
Adding a strong female lead character and an eco-message, that avoids heavy handedness, is greatly appreciated. The book is perfect for young people (boys and girls) who have an interest in the sci-fi genre.
--Ray Cha, Pop Gadget, 8/7/09
Rumer was a strong female heroine and fought to find the truth, always, but I seriously loved Qix. All in all, a great story for futuristic sci-fi lovers and haters alike. A very nice read. --The Electrical Book Cafe, 9/28/09
