'In a climate-ravaged future, the love between two sisters is the only hope for humanity's future. This is sci-fi at its best: floating cities, kindness and desert islands.' * Lauren James, author of The Reckless Afterlife of Harriet Stoker *
'I fell in love with this haunting, futuristic world and the sisters searching for each other in it. He's words will stay with you long after the final page.' * Marie Lu, #1 NYT bestselling author of Skyhunter *
'Much like the floating cities within its pages, this book is a perfect synthesis of high-tech futurism and dreamlike imagery.

'A zippy pace challenges readers to keep up as surprising layers unfold-a sci-fi onion of sorts with quite the shocker of a core...A heartbreaking story of a young woman who loved her sister enough to survive years of horrors in order to get back to her, only to discover that things may not have been what they seemed. It's painful stuff, beautifully written, and He gives that suffering the space it deserves in this reflective novel.' * The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books R for Recommended review *
'This beautiful story...of separated sisters is set in a highly imaginative world. For readers who liked Davina Bell's The End of the World Is Bigger than Love this is an equally challenging and rewarding read that shows how the bonds of love transcend a dystopian world.' * Readings *
'He's writing is beautiful and propulsive, spare where it needs to be, lyric and suspenseful in its deep explorations of the novel's world. This is one of the strongest sci-fi novels I've ever read.
