An infamous underground fight club for magically-gifted Defectives, Litmus is where you find out what you’re made of.
That’s exactly what twenty-one-year-old Nuka James wants most: to discover who she really is. Called the “walking microwave” by her friends, Nuka is Defective and has the ability to manipulate heat. Raised by adoptive parents, she has spent the last three years searching for her birth mother. She finds more than she expected when her search leads her to Litmus, and she discovers that her mother is the leader of one of five Litmus fighting teams. Now Nuka must fight—literally—to win her mother’s affection. As a Litmus fighter, Nuka stands to win money, fame, glory … maybe even love. If she can survive to enjoy it.
Litmus is a spin-off of The Institute Series. While it is set in the same world, and characters from The Institute make appearances, it can be read as a separate, standalone series.Losing Nuka is a YA/NA crossover, suitable for people fifteen years and older.
