FESTIVAL BOOK

The Hive

When 17-year-old Cassie makes an edgy, online joke, her viral comment whips an entire country into a frenzy and the Hive demands retribution. Forced to go on the run from this deadly, state-sanctioned mob and aided by a shadowy underground network, Cassie becomes an unlikely heroine as her search for the truth makes her a threat to the entire unjust system. Set in the near future, <em>The Hive</em> is part coming-of-age story, part socio-speculative thriller, and shockingly relevant today.
