's review

really liked it

Maggie likes living in the wild with her family, outside the bubble cities, until one day her parents disappear. This sort of adventure story does not often have a female protagonist, especially one without any romantic angle at all. I was worried for a while that it was just going to be a big allegory about the dangers of genetically modified food, but happily it avoided politics in favor of better world-building. All in all, I enjoyed it.
