by Sarah Addison-Fox 
Genre: YA Dystopian Romance 

Publisher: Double Edged Sword Publishing 
Publication Date: June 28, 2019


☢☣ For fans who loved Divergent comes an action-packed love story celebrating Autism and Neurodivergence that you won't want to put down. ☢☣

Mallory's been hiding who she is for 18 years...

But now her terrible secret has been exposed.

Branded Irrelevant, Mallory is cut off from everything she knows. 

Irrelevants are criminals, banished to live in the old city. But in the wasteland between the new city and the old, she stumbles on Cristan.

He's bitter, paranoid, and possibly crazy...

He may also be right about everything.

To survive, Mallory must figure out who to trust, and embrace the behaviour she's been taught to deny. 

The answers may lie in a place even the most rebellious Irrelevants won't go. 

--- 

"An addictive adventure story with a Jekyll and Hyde flavour." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"A riveting YA dystopian romance that hits all the familiar beats in fresh ways, and does a great job with neurodiversity." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"The author's diverse characters in this well-written story are all perfectly developed. I was thoroughly entertained on all levels of this fast-paced novel. Irrelevant, leaves you wanting more at the end with a cliffhanger that reminded me of Terry Brooks. I'm hooked. Brava!" ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 


Jackie continues as she taps on the tablet screen. “They came up with the label Irrelevant when they didn’t know what to do with us. We’re the weirdos, the freaks, the handicapped, the artistic, the neurologically different. We’re what they can’t control because we look at the world as being beautiful and full of colour.”
My skin goosebumps and I want to cry and wrap my arms around her and squeeze her like Jed did to me, but I feel like I’m close to understanding something about myself I’ve never understood, so I stay completely still as she flips the tablet so I can see the application Cristan showed me before.
You see colours. You see patterns. You see beauty and wonder. And you are many, many things Mallory, but not one of them makes you Irrelevant.”

When we reach a large grey building with solar panels on the sloped roof, I’m relieved to find it’s well-kept, and as with the other modern structures in the city, he swipes his wrist, the panel illuminates, and a robotic voice speaks. "Cristan. How’s it hanging dude?"
Cristan. His name is Cristan.
He laughs and sends me a wry look. “They’ve been messing with the programming again.”
I want to ask how that is possible when all computers are maintained by the central government, but the door opens with a swish that makes me think of home.
However, inside is nothing like my quiet, ordered home. Unlike my home unit, this enormous structure is filled with noise and mess. Worse, there are dozens of Irrelevants dressed like Cristan and a straggly looking animal that’s coming towards me. With horror, I realise the animal is missing a leg.
And it’s all I can do to not silently scream.
****
The words slip out. “But where do you draw the line? They’re already docking credits, they take our food, give us no warning when new arrivals are coming. They treat us like crap. How long till they stop sending meds? Or water purification? They keep us out here, just out of reach, but why? Why not just let us fend for ourselves?”

Drew doesn’t react to my ongoing argument; he’s heard everything before. “Cristan. Just stop. For one night, switch off and enjoy your birthday. You can save the world tomorrow.”

I tense my muscles and turn on my heel as I go over the plan again. It seems simple and maybe if I weren’t such a jaded cynic, who’s spent eighteen years seeing human beings at pretty much their worst, I’d see it differently.
But I don’t trust Jackson. I don’t trust Trey. And a blonde Irrelevant girl, who hums and rocks, who I’m supposed to be protecting, is at the mercy of whoever else Jackson has hiding out here.
I send Trey a glance as we enter the common area. “How many others are out here?”
Trey grabs a bag and throws it over his shoulder. He’s cagey, which makes my skin rise. “See, now here’s the thing you didn’t get to talk about with Jackson, the others, they are kind of….”
His face twists into a half smile. “Ghosts.”

I gape at him. There are almost three hundred people locked inside Unit 2B, and seven other Units in my quadrant, that are all locked up tight, with no food, or medicine getting in or out, my little brother is now in danger and he’s talking about ghosts?

Derek looks even less pleased than I am when he gives me a clipped nod. “We can no longer overlook the infractions. The Irrelevant boy will be extracted, then Unit 2B will be made an example of.”
Fire floods my blood. I suck a breath in through my gritted teeth. I’m centimetres away from him, so close I can see a vein pulsing under his left eye. “What do you mean example of?”
The light that signals the lift is about to arrive illuminates. Time starts to slow. I notice everything as if it’s in slow motion like in the old movies I watched.
I see the tiny spot of moisture growing on his temple. The unease amongst the guards.
They’re nervous. On alert. Probably concerned I’ll go berserk again and do something stupid.
They have every right to be nervous. I’m fully prepared to do something stupid.
I inhale slowly, filling my lungs as I ready myself to move. The lift doors start to open, my pulse accelerates, eyes flicking to the closest threats.
Derek expects me to follow meekly like a lamb to the slaughter.
He thinks he knows me. Understands what I’ll do and what I value. He thinks he can manipulate me and get me to do what he wants.

He’s wrong. So, so, wrong.
