It’s easy to believe in the apocalypse when you’re losing your religion.

NASA has assured everyone the passage of rogue planet Malachite will be safe, but Crosby's been getting other messages—from a fortune teller and Malachite truther message boards. And now she believes that Malachite will kill everyone who doesn’t ascend to the fourth dimension—a higher plane that transcends physicality.

She tries to prepare her friends and family to leave their bodies behind and raise their frequency by changing their diets, wearing the right crystals, and moving into her friend’s bunker before it’s too late. But no one is listening.

The more time she spends trying to talk her roommate and her quirky friends into her apocalypse plans, the more Crosby is forced to face the cracks in everything she believes to be true.

This novel in verse explores the danger and humanity of conspiracy in a post-truth world through empathy, friendship, and forgiveness.

"Cue The Twilight Zone music: this novel in verse is offbeat and then some [...] Feinstein’s unusual, well-written, and richly imagined novel will be catnip to speculative apocalypse fans and to all those who enjoy something different."

"Themes of misinformation on social media, cultural appropriation, and critical thinking make this debut from poet Feinstein one to give older teens looking for a unique, relatable issue- and character-driven book."

"Heartrending [...] Feinstein incisively reflects on friendship and change while illustrating misinformation’s allure and aftermath via first-person-present verse poems by turns snarky and soulful."
—Publishers Weekly

"An ultimately hopeful swirl of prognostication, conspiracy theory, and angst."
Kirkus Reviews

“A gripping, vivid story of dangerous conspiracy pitted against hopeful friendship that made me want to simultaneously devour and savor the book.”
—Jessica Kara, author of Don’t Ask If I’m Okay
