Though billed as YA, this novel is every bit as dark and dystopian as Bacigalupi’s earlier work, sharing many elements from both Windup Girl and Pump Six and Other Stories. It stands on it’s own quite well and its faster-paced plot will definitely hold the interest of younger readers with compelling characters and a well-realized setting that’s very believable. The story of Nailer and those around him are told in a way that’s both entertaining and gives one a great deal of food for thought.
