Book:  The Search For WondLa, $17.99 Hardcover, ISBN 9781416983101, On Sale Date: September 21, 2010.  About the book: Raised by an over protective robot named Muthr in an underground world, promising twelve-year old Eva Nine never knew of a mother or father.  In fact, she's never encountered another human!  Despite her sheltered upbringing, Eva believes that others like her exist, because of one item she treasures more than anything, a scrap of cardboard on which is depicted a young girl, an adult, and a robot, with the strange word, "WondLa".
When an evil and dangerous intruder forces her to flee her underground Sanctuary, Eva ventures to the surface for the first time in her life.  Aboveground in a strange new world, Eva finds herself hunted by an unrelenting alien, but, luckily, she makes some interesting new friends that help her to safety and aid her in uncovering the mystery of WondLa.
