Sarah Prineas’s new book is an action-packed, funny, and heartwarming outer-space adventure about a troublesome little shape-shifter on the run from the law. Perfect for fans of Rick Riordan and Geoff Rodkey! Trouble knows two things: they are a shapeshifter, and they are running from something--but they don't know what. Changing from blob of goo form, to adorable puppy form, to human boy form, Trouble stows away on a spaceship on an intergalactic journey. This shapeshifting adventure resonates with themes of safety, freedom, and finding a way to feel at home.

Sarah Prineas is the author of the Magic Thief series, the Winterling trilogy,  Ash & BrambleRose & Thorn, and  Heart of the Land from the Spirit Animals series. She lives in Iowa City, Iowa. You can visit Sarah online at
