Abstract:

A remarkable teen with a photographic memory must alter a dark future she has seen with her own eyes in this "cyberpunk tour de force thrill ride" (VOYA). Elena Martinez has hidden her eidetic memory all her life-or so she thinks. But when powerful tech giant aether Corporation selects her for a top-secret project, she can't say no. All she has to do is participate in a trip to the future to bring back data, and she'll be set for life. Elena joins a team of four other teens with special skills, including Adam, a science prodigy with his own reason for being there. But when the time travelers arrive in the future, something goes wrong, and they break the only rule they were given: Do not look into their own fates. Now they have twenty-four hours to get back to the present and find a way to stop a seemingly inevitable future from unfolding. With time running out and deadly secrets uncovered, Elena must use her memory, street smarts, and a growing trust in Adam to save her new friends-and herself. Hailed by Publishers Weekly as "a tense tale of predestination and paranoia, fleshed out with a diverse cast and an intriguing premise," Future Shock is an ingenious story by Elizabeth Briggs, author of the popular Chasing the Dream series. Briggs combines time-travel science fiction, murder mystery, romance, and page-turning suspense in an electrifying adventure that devoted fans of the Hunger Games, Divergent, and Maze Runner series will eagerly devour.
