If you love science fiction, Paolo Bacigalupi’s The Drowned Cities, companion to the award-winning Ship Breaker, is a must-read!

This brilliantly written novel captures an America immersed in civil wars, driven by demagogues who mold children into soulless killers. Mahlia and Mouse have barely managed to escape the violence plaguing the Drowned Cities. Their fragile safety is threatened when they discover a wounded half-man—a bioengineered war beast named Tool, who is hunted by soldiers. When tragedy strikes, Mahlia must risk everything to save the boy who once saved her—or flee for her own safety.

Drawing upon the brutal truths of current events, this is a powerful tale of loyalty, survival and heart-pounding adventure.
