Isla, a Black, transgender girl, is just an ordinary student when government forces arrest her and her teacher for alleged revolutionary activity. This action turns Isla first into a prisoner, then into an escaped prisoner, and ultimately into an activist working for social justice.

Zelniker takes readers on an exhilarating ride marked by danger, close calls, and betrayals, with love and friendship as the reward.

“A thriller with belief in revolution that our times need.” — Gina Apostol, PEN Open Book Award winner, author of Gun Dealers’ Daughter and The Revolution According to Raymundo Mata

After being arrested for alleged revolutionary activity, Isla, a young, Black, transgender girl, is jailbroken by her sister.

On the run with a motley crew of activists and refugees, she becomes an activist and hero committed to overthrowing the authoritarian regime gripping her country.

In sharp prose, Until We Fall demonstrates the importance of family, given and chosen.

Praise for Until We Fall

“Fans of dystopian fiction will be pleased with the terrifying similarity of Zelniker’s world and ours—like a fun-house mirror, this novel shows us an image that is both disturbing and recognizable as what our nation would look like if fascism and conservatism prevailed.” — Sadie Hoagland, author of Strange Children and American Grief in Four Stages

“An impactful story of what could be that will shake you to your core, told in a powerful voice.” — Nathan Caro Fréchette, author of Blood Relations

 “Both tender and gripping, Until We Fall is a propulsive tale of revolution and community in the tradition of Octavia E. Butler’s Parable of the Sower. It serves as a powerful reminder of how quickly freedom can disappear—and how central love is to the work of winning it back.” — Johanna Stoberock, author of Pigs and City of Ghosts
