Reviews

* "An inspiring tale of friendship, survival, hope, and transcendence."--Kirkus, starred review * "This is a powerful, ultimately hopeful story that builds on today's sociopolitical, ethical, and scientific issues and prognosticates a compelling picture of what the future could bring. All of these serious issues are held together by a remarkable coming-of-age story."--Booklist, starred review * "Farmer's novel may be futuristic, but it hits close to home, raising questions of what it means to be human, what is the value of life, and what are the responsibilities of a society. Readers will be hooked from the first page."--Publishers Weekly, starred review "This is mind-expanding fiction for older teens that also works for adults--think Upton Sinclair's The Jungle, Orwell's 1984 or Nevil Shute's On the Beach."--USA Today "Strong, rough, exciting reading."--Chicago Tribune "A story rich in twists and tangles, heroes and heroines, villages and dupes, and often dazzlingly beautiful descriptive prose."--The Boston Globe
