Above, by Isla Morley, Book Tour with GIVEAWAY!


In ABOVE, chosen for the March 2014 Indie Next List, award- winning author Isla Morley crafts a stunning and harrowing novel about a Kansas teenager who is abducted and locked away in an abandoned missile silo by a conspiracy theorist who believes the end of the world is coming.

Blythe Hallowell is sixteen when she is abducted by a survivalist and locked away in an abandoned missile silo in Eudora, Kansas. At first, she focuses frantically on finding a way out, until the harrowing truth of her new existence settles in—the crushing loneliness, the terrifying madness of a captor who believes he is saving her from the end of the world, and the persistent temptation to give up.

But nothing prepares Blythe for the burden of raising a child in confinement.

Determined to give the boy everything she has lost, she pushes aside the truth about a world he may never see for a myth that just might give meaning to their lives below ground. Years later, their lives are ambushed by an event at once promising and devastating. As Blythe’s dream of going home hangs in the balance, she faces the ultimate choice —between survival and freedom.

ABOVE is a riveting tale of resilience in which “stunning” (Daily Beast) new literary voice Isla Morley compels us to imagine what we would do if everything we had ever known was taken away. Like the bestselling authors of Room and The Lovely Bones.

  1. hey. so if you’re still interested, here’s the info on the blog tour. if not, no worries 🙂

    “Blog Tour” questions:

    1. What am I working on at the moment?

    2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?

    3. Why do I write what I do?

    4. How does my writing process work?

    My “Blog Tour” post will be published on Monday, May 19th. My post will include my answers, as well as the links to the three bloggers that I have selected to participate in the Blog Tour (including you 🙂 ), and a link back to the blogger that originally invited me to participate.

    If you’re interested, your Blog Tour post would need to be published on Monday, May 26th. You can just answer the questions, list the links of the three bloggers that you select (their post would need to be published on Monday, June 2nd…with the cycle continuing), and also please include a link to my blog from your Blog Tour post. 🙂


  2. Wow, that sounds like a really moving and interesting read. Have you ever checked out “Room?” It’s a sad and complicated story, told from the perspective of a child who is held with his mother in a very small room for years.

    On a more positive note – I’m participating in a Blog Tour and was wondering if you’d be interested in it. Essentially, it involves answering a few questions and picking a few bloggers that you follow to participate as well. Let me know if you’re interested! 🙂
