This book has just received a starred Kirkus Review, so we'd like to add it as the very beginning of the book's description for both the paperback and the Kindle editions.

[The quote is as follows:]

“A sci-fi series opener with ADHD as a key component that deserves all the attention it can get.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

[Therefore we'd like the entire book entry to read as follows, with the Kirkus review appearing first. Formatting isn't coming through here, but "Kirkus Reviews" should be italicized and if possible the whole quote can be bolded before we go into the book description. THANK YOU!]


“A sci-fi series opener with ADHD as a key component that deserves all the attention it can get.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

They’ve lived among us for decades without incident. Until now.

The Caelans are a nonviolent and technically advanced people who long ago conquered anger and interstellar travel. Virtually indistinguishable from us, they hide in plain sight. They live in our neighborhoods and work in our offices.

But something unexpected happens at their base of operations in the Midwestern United States. Anger begins to infect some of them—like a disease. When the mysterious outbreak takes their leader, Regulus Lafaye, he becomes hostile and violent. He even abuses his mind power, psy, in order to control others.

The Caelans’ peaceful nature makes it impossible for them to stand up to Lafaye’s aggression, until Avery—one of the uninfected—stumbles upon an unlikely hope: Chase Madison, a plucky criminal recently incarcerated for selling his ADHD meds. Avery discovers that Chase’s ADHD makes him immune to the Caelans’ psy, and therefore key to the cure.

It also makes him a target.

Emily | 14434 comments The librarian manual says that descriptions cannot include reviews or praise. Those can go in the author's notes, status, or blog updates, from what I have read on other threads in the past.

Someone else can clarify if I am mistaken.
Here's the policy:
