Alex and Lila, the much in-love stars of Hunting Lila, are back for a new adventure that is just as electrifying as the first. This time the Unit is after them and soon they will have no place to hide. Alex will do anything to save Lila; that's all he wants. Lila wants to return to her family in California and keep them safe -even if it means taking risks. But Lila also wants to destroy the Unit. She knows there will be no peace until that happens. All the plans are deadly dangerous. How will Alex and Lila survive against such desperate odds?

Synopsis

Losing Lila by Sarah Alderson

Alex and Lila are on the run, desperately trying to stay one step ahead of the Unit, which is somehow tracking their every move. While Alex is determined to keep Lila safe and her ability secret at any cost, Lila's only thought is of finding a way back to California so she can rescue her brother and mother from the military base where they're being held. Struggling to control both her growing power and her deepening feelings for Alex, Lila decides the time has finally come to stop running and start fighting. Together with Alex, Demos, and the others she's come to think of as family, Lila plans not only to save her brother and mum, but also to completely destroy the Unit and everything it stands for. But the plan requires Lila to return to California alone, and to make friends with the enemy - and in doing so, she risks losing everything: Alex, her family...even her life.

About the Author

Having spent most of her life in SE London, apart from uni in Bristol and a year in Italy, Sarah Alderson quit her job in the not for profit sector in 2009 and took off on a round-the-world trip with her husband and daughter, on a mission to find a new place to call home. After several months in India, Singapore, Australia and the US, they settled in Bali, where Sarah now spends her days writing by the pool. Hunting Lila is her first novel and she is currently working on the sequel. A new book, Fated, publishes in January.
