Reviews

"Denise's fear is palpable throughout, which helps to push this sci-fi novel into thriller territory... Duyvis' attention to detail and strong descriptions will recommend this to fans of the genre."--Booklist "Readers are immersed in the tics and tactile aspects of Denise's condition as Duyvis (Otherbound) skillfully incorporates an exploration of complex mental conditions, addiction, and gender identity into her narrative. It's a riveting apocalyptic thriller with substantial depth."--Publishers Weekly "There is a great level of diversity in this book, which raises questions of who is worth saving and what makes a person have value."--School Library Connection **STARRED REVIEW** "This novel offers an edge-of-your-seat survival plot and a compelling narrative. It subtly raises questions about the value of a human life without didacticism or easy answers, and the diverse cast, including a biracial heroine and characters of various races, religions, and sexualities, gives the novel real-world authenticity and impact. Duyvis deftly balances broader social elements with a powerful family story...A worthy readalike for North's Starglass, this near-future scifi will gain fans amongst those who want a story that is simultaneously heartbreaking and thought-provoking."--BCCB ***STARRED REVIEW*** "Insightful, suspenseful, and unsettling in its plausibility, this novel is sure to stick with readers long after the last page has been turned. VERDICT A high level of believability and excellent writing make this diverse apocalyptic novel a recommended selection for any young adult collection."--School Library Journal **STARRED REVIEW** ..".what makes this a winner is the nerve-racking adventure. Life-affirming science fiction with spaceships, optimism in the apocalypse, and a diverse cast that reflects the real world." --Kirkus
