“The Sonet Walker”Novel by Bill Conroy
(Paperback version.) School of Authentic Journalism professor and investigative journalist Bill Conroy’s newest science fiction novel is a tale of caution and hope set in a near-future society that is ruled by a ruthless, tyrannical government, which maintains control through a social network called Sonet. The book follows the journeys of Synthia Washington, a seemingly normal teenager who is trying to navigate a chaotic, unforgiving world while also seeking to discover the source of her special gift — which has made her a target of the oppressive government. That gift also has the potential to change the course of her society — and her life in the process. In the end, The Sonet Walker is a thriller written for all ages that also is very relevant to the times we live in today.
