About the Book

Kenz is under the reign of an oppressive regime led by those they call the Silencers. The youth of the world, who are born into a life with special abilities, are sent on the run, sometimes by their own parents. Now the young refugees must form a resistance and take down the government. Adrian is an anxiety-ridden teenager from Earth whose world was turned upside down five years ago, when her family vanished in front of her. Since then, she’s bounced around between foster homes—until now. Her childhood sweetheart has come back and is taking her to a new world. Frightened at the thought, she finds courage in the chance of finding her little sister once again. But she never expected to find herself with the power necessary to lead a war. Jassyn is the reason that soldiers are afraid to hunt for refugees in the woods. Since the day that she witnessed her family’s massacre, she has been a fighter by every definition. She’s been training herself, honing her body, and turning it into a weapon. Now that Adrian has arrived in Kenz, the war that Jassyn’s family died for, the one that had gone cold, is reignited. The Uprising is a novel that explores the importance of taking a stand. It’s a book about kids and teenagers taking on an army. And although there are always casualties in war, they cling to the hope that they will see the fall of the Silencers.

About the Author

Emily and Rebecca met in their communications program at the University of Ottawa. While they were in very different places in life, Rebecca being a typical young twenty-something and Emily being a young mom, they bonded immediately over their life with sisters and their love of books, pop culture, and social justice issues. Both are working professionals, Rebecca works for the City of Ottawa and Emily works for Canada Post. Outside of their 9-5s, they created the world of Kenz. This magical realm is where people can go to be swept away by adventure and, hopefully, where anyone can find their voice. You can find both authors on Facebook and journey with them on other adventures.
