The Gilded Lynx
Leah Erickson, author
Daphne is a fourteen-year-old girl who leads a life of wealth and privilege but also great loneliness. She is the daughter of the CEO of a biotech mega-company who has gone missing, and a beautiful but failed movie star of a mother. Her wish to escape her little bubble and explore the outside world becomes true when her life gets torn apart in a rash of violent riots and The Sickness, as the downtrodden rise up against the privileged and the dead pile up. Homeless and on the run, she navigates this new world and tries to uncover the true nature of her father’s company. A coming of age story in a dark future.
