Description

A postapocalyptic novel with a cinematic twist from New York Times bestseller Barry Lyga, actor Peter Facinelli, and producer Robert DeFranco.
On the ruined planet Earth, where 50 billion people are confined to megacities and resources are scarce, Deedra has been handed a bleak and mundane existence by the Magistrate she works so hard for. But one day she comes across a beautiful boy named Rose struggling to cross the river--a boy with a secretive past and special abilities, who is somehow able to find comfort and life from their dying planet.
But just as the two form a bond, it is quickly torn apart after the Magistrate's son is murdered and Rose becomes the prime suspect. Little do Deedra and Rose know how much their relationship will affect the fate of everyone who lives on the planet.

From Publishers Weekly

May 25, 2015 – In the far-off future, humankind has so ravaged the planet that plants and other life forms are nearly extinct. While a corrupt government exercises control over its remaining citizens, a strange boy named Rose turns up in 16-year-old Deedra's home territory and inspires a quiet uprising that has her questioning everything, from the machines she builds at her factory job to the news provided via "wikinet" feed. The dystopian setting bears disturbing similarities to the modern world, serving as a cautionary tale about our own lasting impact on the planet. While the authors paint a frighteningly believable landscape, the characters remain opaque. Deedra, forced to be independent since her orphanage shut down when she was 12, becomes suddenly and inextricably dependent on Rose soon after meeting him. Their magnetic attraction also comes at a cost to Deedra's heretofore best friend, Lissa, who despite her own harrowing subplot is all but forgotten. Loose ends and unanswered questions leave room for future books. Ages 15 up.

Customer Reviews

Captivating!

This book kept me interested the entire time. I love how it made me emotionally invested in the characters. Can't wait to see what happens next!!

Hmmmmm

I thought, maybe a fourteen year old wrote this. It appears to have been written by three men (grown, sad, loveless virgins I'm assuming). Well you got my $9.00 boys. May I spare the next reader.
