Review quote

"Fans won't be disappointed. Few readers will anticipate the conclusion, which makes for a fitting end to a tongue-in-cheek yet violent glimpse into a future of equality, greed, and organized crime." -- Booklist "With an interwoven back story that will leave readers gobsmacked, Kahaney's description is so detailed readers will easily slip into this futuristic world with its palpably sordid creepiness." -- Kirkus Reviews "A ripping...page-turner." -- Kirkus Reviews "An urgent dare-ya through a darkly, wildly imagined future. Go ahead and try to predict the hairpin turns and steep reverses as you race through this sharply-conceived urban odyssey." -- Adele Griffin, author of ALL YOU NEVER WANTED "Gorgeously written and richly imagined, this heart-pounding, high-octane novel of suspense, romance, and revenge introduces a stunning new voice in YA fiction as well as a new kind of superhero. You won't be able to put this one down." -- NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Aimee Friedman "graceful world-building [with] strong characterizations and an enveloping plot..." -- Publishers Weekly "Anthem, with her unwillingness to be just another brokenhearted girl, will likely inspire legions of teenage girls to forget the guys and go kick some butt." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Back cover copy

The most dangerous enemy is the one you can't see . . .

After a perilous accident that literally stopped her heart, Anthem Fleet was left with a jagged scar down the front of her chest--and a strength she is still learning to control. Her new powers helped her defeat a network of criminals in Bedlam's seedy underbelly, but Anthem doesn't want the life of a crime-fighting vigilante. She just wants to practice ballet, and help nurse Ford, her friend and partner, back to health.

But when a mysterious group called the Invisible starts attacking the privileged North Siders, Anthem's whole world is thrown into chaos. Invisible's threats seem like harmless pranks at first, but as their demands escalate, people start to die. Now Anthem must step up and be the hero that the city needs, or Bedlam will fall . . . once and for all.
