NEW REVIEWS

Thank you to Aaron Casella for the following reviews:

ship breakerShip Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi - This book is set in a dystopian future in which a boy is scavenging for oil and metals on broken down ships. There is a large scarcity of these items in the world at this point in time, which makes them such valuable commodities. However, the protagonist Nailer has many things going wrong in his life at this point in time. More

 

drowned citiesThe Drowned Cities by Paolo Bacigalupi - This book is similar to Ship Breaker in many ways, though I find it a bit more complex. While both are set in a dystopian future, this one is about a girl living in a country ravaged by warfare. More
