The Outs is E.S. Wesley’s young adult debut, coming January 2017 from CQ Press.
Caleb’s been changing ever since the memory-stealing blackouts—the Outs—started. He used to be a good, dependable, honor-student. But now his parents have vanished, and a little voice inside tells him their disappearance is his fault.
And now that voice has pushed him to kidnap a little girl. Caleb wants to believe he did it to protect her, but he’s starting to wonder if he’s the one she needs protection from.
Then there’s Kitzi. Kitzi knows a secret she can’t share, locked in her head behind layers of brain damage. She wants to help Caleb and the kidnapped little girl, but she suspects a dangerous connection between this girl and the Outs. If Kitzi can survive Caleb’s mistakes and the strange girl’s reality-bending fits long enough to put the pieces together, her secret might save them. Or it could mean the end of everything.
