PREQUEL TO I AM MARGARET

In a dystopian future, an innocent picnic turns deadly.

Margo and Bane have the perfect Saturday planned out - a bike ride, a train ride, a nice picnic... But when they're mistaken for terrorists, the army are after them with lethal force. Can two teenagers evade a massive manhunt? Their lives, and those of their families, depend on it. This prequel short story was first published in the anthology SECRETS: VISIBLE & INVISIBLE by Catholic Teen Books in 2018.
