Out Now: The 716

Out Now: The 716

Hey everyone! I’m S.J., a YA sci-fi writer from Ōtautahi and I’m so excited to announce that my novel, The 716, is out now!

The 716 is the first book in a new trilogy. Get ready for a feminist YA novel with a compelling sci-fi world where sexism is flipped on its head. The story is character driven, focusing on two ambitious protagonists who want to be engineers. Multiple POVs, strong sibling bonds, a touch of romance and an adorable robotic friend are all in store.

Olivia is destined to be the future leader of Meliora. She’s smart, rich, and innovative, and she has a pink Identifeye light.

Andy is destined to be a waiter and househusband. His blue Identifeye light prevents him from pursuing his dream of becoming an engineer. After all, who ever heard of a male engineer?

But when Andy’s life becomes entangled with Olivia’s and he gets the chance to prove himself on the female stage, everything starts to change.

In a society where men are second-class citizens and only binary gender norms are acceptable, Andy and Olivia must confront their own beliefs and decide what kind of world they want to live in.

Will they do what is expected or what is right? And will the wrong choice spell disaster?
