The Evaporation of Sofi Snow by Mary Weber


The Evaporation of Sofi Snow 
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release Date: June 6th 2017
Genre: Young Adult, Science Fiction, Dystopia


Ever since the Delonese ice-planet arrived eleven years ago, Sofi's dreams have been vivid. Alien. In a system where Earth's corporations rule in place of governments and the humanoid race orbiting the moon are allies, her only constant has been her younger brother, Shilo. As an online gamer, Sofi battles behind the scenes of Earth's Fantasy Fighting arena where Shilo is forced to compete in a mix of real and virtual blood sport. But when a bomb takes out a quarter of the arena, Sofi's the only one who believes Shilo survived. She has dreams of him. And she's convinced he's been taken to the ice-planet.

Except no one but ambassadors are allowed there.

For Miguel, Earth's charming young playboy, the games are of a different sort. As Ambassador to the Delonese, his career has been built on trading secrets and seduction. Until the Fantasy Fight's bomb goes off. Now the tables have turned and he's a target for blackmail. The game is simple: Help the blackmailers, or lose more than anyone can fathom, or Earth can afford.




Mary Weber is the multiple-award-winning author of the bestselling young adult Storm Siren Trilogy, and The Evaporation of Sofi Snow series (all by HarperCollins). An avid high school, middle school, and conference speaker, Mary's passion is helping others find their voice amid a world that often feels too loud. When she's not plotting adventures involving tough girls who frequently take over the world, Mary sings 80's hairband songs to her three muggle children, and ogles her husband who looks strikingly like Wolverine. They live in California which is perfect for stalking L.A. bands, Comic-Con, and the ocean.

Mary's debut, Storm Siren, was featured in the Scholastic School Book Fairs, and her novels have been endorsed by bestselling authors Marissa Meyer, Jay Asher, Wendy Higgins, CJ Redwine, and Jonathan Maberry.

You can also find Mary's fun interviews in the paperback of Marissa Meyer's NYT bestselling, CRESS, and in Jay Asher's 13 REASONS WHY movie tie-in edition. Most recently, you can see her and her family as extras in the NETFLIX Original Series, 13 REASONS WHY.

Interview with Mary Weber

(1)Do your characters seem to hijack the story, ordo you feel like you have the reigns of the story? Funny enough, I don’t think I’ve ever been asked this before! But the characters defi-nitely run in random directions. They never hijack things enough to redirect the ultimate plot, but I’m always finding them insisting on their own personalities, choices, anddra-matic moments within the plot. It’s a bit like having children, come to think of it. ;)

(2)Convince us why you feel your book is a must read. Well,my mom likes it, so there’s that. ;) But honestly, I don’t think every book is for eve-ryone. However, if you like a fast-paced, high-stakes story focused around a gamer girl who’lldo anything to protect her brother, an ice planet that’s appeared beside Earth’s moon, alien abductions, diversity, betrayal, political intrigue, and a playboy ambassador who knows much more than he’s saying...The Evaporation of Sofi Snow is likely your cup of tea. 

(3)Have you written any other books that are not published?  I’ve written one unpublished story – four years before my first novel (Storm Siren) released. Admittedly, the manuscript is a huge, glorious mess, but I’m still wildly in love with it, lol.

 (4)Pen or type writer or computer?  I plot everything on paper, but when it comes to the actual writing, I use my com-puter.  Alone.  In silence.  With mydoor closed.  Otherwise my brain is yelling “squirrel” every five seconds and I’m like, “Ooh let’s make cookies and paint things.”

(5)Anything you would like to say to your readers and fans? I have the best fans ever. Honestly. They are brilliant, creative, and most importantly –they are incredibly kind. I see their Instagrams, messages, and comments, and I’m blown away by the goodness they put into the world. They are my community, and I will do just about anything for them. I feel like a broken record on repeat, because all I can continually say is, “Thank you. Thank you for sitting at this table of friendship with meand for believing in the power of authentic community. Long may our nerd flag wave.
