If you’re a fan of The Maze Runner and Alex Rider, you might want to pick up SYLO by best-selling author DJ MacHale. The new young-adult series-starter from the author of the Pendragon books follows 14-year-old Tucker Pierce, whose small town is invaded by a secret branch of the U.S. military called SYLO. The book promises a fast-paced read and a huge cliff-hanger. We have to wait until July 2 for all those big twists, but luckily, we have an exclusive first look inside the novel — and it’s a big chunk! Get cozy this long weekend with the first eight chapters of SYLO.
