May's humdrum life gets flung into hyperdrive when she's abducted, but not all aliens are out to probe her. She's inadvertently rescued by Xan who's been orbiting Earth in a day-glo orange rocket ship, watching re-runs of "I Love Lucy".
Seizing the opportunity for a better life, May learns how to race the Audacity and pilots her way into interstellar infamy. Finally, she has a job she likes and a friend to share her winnings with--until the Goddess of Chaos screws the whole thing up, and Xan's unmentionable past makes a booty call.
About the Author
Laura Loup is a very serious humorologist with an extremely impressive BFA in animation that she promises to never actually use and an intense desire to eat orange. Not the fruit, the color. Though the fruit will do in a pinch. She owns a metaphysical shop in Savannah, GA with her husband and is the mildly peckish artist behind Tarot in Space.
"Cleverly written and thought out as well as highly imaginative. I highly recommend stepping aboard The Audacity, and make sure you're ready for a wild ride when you do!"
"I haven't literally laughed out loud at a book since Good Omens, and Laura Loup had me laughing for a solid amount of time."
"Fantastic characters, intriguing conundrums, space racing, time travel, smile-inducing friendships and so much orange."
