This may be written by a 15 year old girl but Out There is a real page-turner and a must read for every teen girl. Imagine living in a future in which you've been brought up to think the Earth is a desolate place, that men are evil and destructive which is why there aren't any and that you, aged nearly 18 and a small number of people living in a matriarchal civilisation in a single city shielded by a Bubble from the world beyond. Would you believe it? Young Ava believes there are too many things which just don't make sense. What she discovers out beyond the Bubble is something wholly different to what she's been taught. As she is drawn further into that world she becomes even more aware of the immense wrongs of the civilisation she's known inside the Bubble and is determined to put right those wrongs...

Simi says “The book, being set in an alternate utopian future, questions what it means to be perfect. Ava embarks on a compelling journey in an effort to break free from the chains of perfection that have been forced upon her by society. I feel that her struggle reflects some of the pressures which many modern teenagers face today.”

Synopsis

Out There by Simi Prasad

What if the Earth were deserted with only one city remaining? What if there were only one gender? Ava Hart has only ever known what she's been told. But Ava, unlike everyone else, insists on believing that there's more. More to her thriving yet doomed matriarchal civilization, the only city that survived the terrors of The Great Wars. More to her sheltered, carefree life with so many hovering unanswered questions. Soon she finds herself venturing outside of everything she knows and breaking all the sacred rules of her community in search of the truth. But the discoveries she makes along the way will change everything forever.

Simi will be donating a portion of her royalties to Pratham, a children’s education charity.

About the Author

Simi Prasad

Simi Prasad, a 16-year old American expat, has lived in London since the age of three, and has recently published her first fictional novel ‘Out There’, written during her school summer holiday at the age of 15. Currently, she attends an international independent school and lives with her parents and sister.

There are not many 15-year-olds who would spend their entire school summer holiday writing their first novel; however, Simi’s long-held passion for writing kept her motivated and enabled her to finish the manuscript before returning to school.

Simi’s literary ambitions don’t stop there either, as she is already thinking about a sequel!

She says “For a long time I’ve really wanted to write something meaningful and relatable for other teenagers like myself. The summer vacation seemed like the perfect time to do it and my aim is to write a sequel to ‘Out There’,”

Simi will be donating a portion of her royalties to Pratham, a children’s education charity. It is her first novel.
