Hana isn’t supposed to exist. She’s grown up hidden by her mother in a secret room of the bioship Cyclo until the day her mother is simply gone—along with the entire crew. Cyclo tells her she was abandoned, but she’s certain her mother wouldn’t leave her there to die. And Hana isn’t ready to die yet. She’s never really had a chance to live.

Fenn is supposed to die. He and a crew of hired mercenaries are there to monitor Cyclo as she expires, and the payment for the suicide mission will mean Fenn’s sister is able to live. But when he meets Hana, he’s not sure how to save them both.

As Cyclo grows sicker by the day, they unearth more secrets about the ship and the crew. But the more time they spend together, the more Hana and Fenn realize that falling for each other is what could ultimately kill them both.

Praise for TOXIC:

“A powerful and evocative tale of a sentient spaceship — and her painfully human bond with the lonely girl who lives within her walls. Lydia Kang checks all the boxes: Unique world. #OwnVoices heroine. A hero more luminous than the cosmos. TOXIC is extraordinary — in every sense of the word.” – Pintip Dunn, New York Times bestselling author of Forget Tomorrow and Girl On The Verge

“Hauntingly beautiful, completely absorbing, this book will linger with you long after the final page. Toxic asks intricate questions about the identities we inherit and the identities we create, and the sacrifices we’re prepared to make for both. Lydia Kang took my breath away.” – Amie Kaufman, New York Times and internationally bestselling author of Illuminae and Unearthed

“Kang delivers a novel with a unique premise and solid storytelling, which makes it stand out in a sea of similar YA titles.” — Kirkus
