YA Science Fiction/Fantasy
Samantha Taylor is not your average teenager. From the moment she could speak, her first words were filled with questions of the way things worked around her. With a father who fostered her love of science, mirroring his own, Sam is fascinated with genetics and computer programming, two things that have been known to get her into trouble from time to time. While her eccentricities might make it difficult to make friends at her school, she does have one friend, Charlie, a teenage boy who dreams of one day becoming a paleontologist due to his obsession with all things primordial. Especially after the two of them discover the fossil of a triceratops in the back of his uncle’s property.
Sam’s world seems complete, until one life-altering accident bumps it off its axis, sending her into a tailspin she cannot control. When her best friend Charlie is in a coma, Sam feels the only way to bring him back is to create the one thing he dreamed of seeing his entire life, a living breathing dinosaur. She spends every waking hour, creating a virtual reality program that will help her manipulate the genetic code trapped within the rocks that contain the primordial DNA. The DNA of the triceratops they found has been preserved far beneath the earth.
She knew she could crack the code, but the consequences were never figured into the equation….
Sam is catapulted into mass chaos as helicopters fly over her house and she finds that everything she thought was true is tarnished in deception. The consequences of her actions have them fleeing for their lives….
