Praise for THE DARK INTERCEPT

“The Dark Intercept grabbed me from the first page and shook me until the last. A riveting and suspenseful story of love, risk, and betrayal.” —EMMY LAYBOURNE, author of Berserker, Sweet, and the Monument 14 trilogy

“A chilling and thought-provoking look at the power of weaponized emotion.” —MELISSA LANDERS, author of the Alienated trilogy and Starflight

“Both cautionary and hopeful—a rare, literary feat.” —GENNIFER ALBINNew York Times bestselling author of the Crewel World trilogy

“A stormy, spine-tingling ride in which everything remembered and once felt in your life can be used against you.” —BLUE BALLIETT, author of Chasing Vermeer and The Calder Game

“The Dark Intercept goes straight to the heart of why privacy matters in today's world. Keller has written an accessible coming-of-age adventure where the teenage protagonist comes to understand the consequences of living in a society that monitors everyone's emotions, including her own.” —MICHAEL C. ROBINSON, Chair of the American Library Association Intellectual Freedom Committee's Privacy Subcommittee

“Julia Keller writes so viscerally that she takes the readers with her into the worlds she has created. The Intercept is a fascinating springboard which she uses to explore the importance of feelings, and how they affect our lives and choices.” —BETSY FRASER, Selector, Calgary Public Library (Alberta, Canada), and 2016 YALSA/ABC-CLIO/Greenwood Service to Young Adults Achievement Award-winner



The State controls your emotions. What would you pay to feel free?

In a radiant world of endless summer, the Intercept keeps the peace. Violet Crowley, the sixteen-year-old daughter of New Earth’s Founding Father, has spent her life in comfort and safety. Her days are easy thanks to the Intercept, a crime-prevention device that monitors and provokes emotion. But when her long-time crush, Danny Mayhew, gets into a dangerous altercation on Old Earth, Violet launches a secret investigation to find out what he's hiding. An investigation that will lead her to question everything she's ever known about Danny, her father, and the power of the Intercept.

10 Fun things you have done in your life.
Visited the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, the particle accelerator under the earth at Geneva, Switzerland, where the Higgs boson was discovered. I was researching a series about physicists for the Chicago Tribune.
Flew in a homemade plane. I was writing a newspaper story about a guy who’d built a plane in his back yard, and when he invited me to take a ride with him, I said, “Sure, why not?” Later, thinking back on it, I was horrified. I mean: For all I knew, it was held together with paper clips and bubble gum. We landed safely – but it was still pretty dumb of me to do it!
Fired a Gatling Gun. I was writing a book on the multiple-firing gun’s inventor, Richard J. Gatling, and was invited to fire one at an antique gun show. It takes a lot of muscle to turn that hand crank!
Totally messed up baking a cake. I was making my sister a birthday cake and I misread the recipe. I put in double the required amount of water, and the finished cake had a huge cavern right in the middle. It collapsed at the first cut.
Rode for three days in the back of a van, from Huntington, West Virginia, to Tucson, Arizona. My family was traveling to Tucson for my dad to go to graduate school in math. I was stuck in the back. But I had a stack of books so it was actually kind of great.
Built a Reindeer Rest Stop for some young friends of mine on Christmas Eve last year. We used cardboard boxes and made snack dispensers for the reindeer. Santa gets milk and cookies—why shouldn’t the reindeer get carrots and celery? We even made up a song to go with it: “If you’re a reindeer, stop on by; take a break, from the sky . . . ”
Rode the Millennium Force roller coaster at Cedar Point Amusement Park near Cleveland, Ohio – even though I was scared out of my mind.
Adopted two rescue dogs at the same time.
Helped sail a schooner off the coast of Portland, Maine.
Sang karaoke for the very first time two weeks ago.
