Yours for the Taking: A Novel

byGabrielle Korn

The year is 2050. Ava and her girlfriend live in what's left of Brooklyn, and though they love each other, it's hard to find happiness while the effects of climate change rapidly eclipse their world. Soon, it won't be safe outside at all. The only people guaranteed survival are the ones whose applications are accepted to The Inside Project, a series of weather-safe, city-sized structures around the world. Jacqueline Millender is a reclusive billionaire/women’s rights advocate, and thanks to a generous donation, she’s just become the director of the Inside being built on the bones of Manhattan. Her ideas are unorthodox, yet alluring—she's built a whole brand around rethinking the very concept of empowerment. Shelby, a business major from a working-class family, is drawn to Jacqueline’s promises of power and impact. When she lands her dream job as Jacqueline’s personal assistant, she's instantly swept up into the glamourous world of corporatized feminism. Also drawn into Jacqueline's orbit is Olympia, who is finishing up medical school when Jacqueline recruits her to run the health department Inside. The more Olympia learns about the project, though, the more she realizes there's something much larger at play. When Ava is accepted to live Inside and her girlfriend isn’t, she’s forced to go alone. But her heartbreak is quickly replaced with a feeling of belonging: Inside seems like it’s the safe space she’s been searching for… most of the time. Other times she can’t shake the feeling that something is deeply off. As she, Olympia, and Shelby start to notice the cracks in Jacqueline's system, Jacqueline tightens her grip, becoming increasingly unhinged and dangerous in what she is willing to do—and who she is willing to sacrifice—to keep her dream alive. At once a mesmerizing story of queer love, betrayal, and chosen family, and an unflinching indictment of cis, corporate feminism, Gabrielle Korn's Yours for the Taking holds a mirror to our own world, in all its beauty and horror. A Macmillan Audio production from St. Martin’s Press.

About LGBTQIA+ Fiction

LGBTQIA+ fiction forefronts the stories of characters who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, or asexual. While the acronym is limited to just those identity categories, the genre encompasses a diverse range of sexual and gender identities, including gender-questioning or gender-queer characters. Queer fiction finds its roots all the way back in mythology, and the propensity to document LGBTQIA+ lives did not cease, despite censorship. Stories about gay relationships have always been relevant: The genre spans Homer to gothic fiction to Oscar Wilde, and on through Becky Albertalli’s Simon Vs The Homosapiens Agenda, which was adapted into the film "Love, Simon" in 2018. From deeply moving coming out stories to realistic portrayals of romantic relationships to gay werewolves, LGBTQIA+ fiction audiobooks are as diverse as the people they aim to capture in prose. Thematically, the texts will often explore the struggles of people who don't identify as cis or heterosexual, including conflicts with family, ideologies, and society. Still, many are optimistic, cheerful, and fun to read. Nearly every genre can cross with LGBTQIA+ fiction, with a particular emphasis in speculative fiction, romance, fantasy and sci-fi books, young adult works, and erotica.
