You want my one-line recommendation? This is the most exciting book I have read since Emma Clayton's The Roar. Action, plot, an interesting world... deeper questions of what makes family, what makes a person valuable, and to whom and to what do we owe our loyalty... oh man. I am totally hoping there is a second book.

Zeke I so want to read this book now...and The Roar. I'd not heard of Emma Clayton until now. Thanks for the recommendation.

paula Zeke, I promised it to PG... but I can't find it now! I might have given it to a 7th grader I know. It's out in May I think.


Zeke no problem. I have plenty to read right now. I will just have to remember to track it down in May.


Zeke finally got around to reading it. I'm really hoping this is a series. Surely there will be more!


paula Zeke, next in the super-exciting J/YA adventure reading list is Dark Life by Kat Falls. It's kind of old-fashioned and sci-fi at the same time.

Yeah I want more about Nailer, mostly so I can say "Bacigalupi" as often as possible!


Zeke I often bemoan the whole "series" thing but I definitely want more Nailer and TOOL! You'll have to teach me to say Bacigalupi, not even sure I can get all those syllables with my Georgia drawl. Putting "Dark Life" on my wish list now.


Zeke PS: now that I looked up "Dark Life," I'm realizing I'm in luck. I saw it sitting around the house somewhere. Anna must have checked it out recently! Guess she'd also heard of it.


message 1: by Md (new) - rated it 5 stars

Md I agree, this is an amazing book filled with an adventure and the way Nita and Nailer's relationship is created is just wonderful. I loved the ending too. I was not expecting it.
