In 2056, a hurricane-ravaged Gulf Coast has been walled off from the rest of the country, a pandemic rages, and fearless 17-year-old Fen is determined to smuggle her best friend’s newborn baby over the wall before she becomes infected with Delta Fever. Fen is an unforgettable narrator, and the action never stops in this spectacular dystopian novel.
In a toxic wasteland that was once the Gulf Coast, Nailer scavenges wrecked ships and tries to avoid his murderous father. But when he finds a rich girl trapped in one of the wrecks, his world is turned upside down. Set in a dystopian future that makes The Hunger Games look cheerful, this 2011 Michael L. Printz Award winner is not for the faint of heart.
