    I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review A poignant and timely story about forced migration, unlawful immigration, and the hurdles we face trying to adapt to systems that are inherently antagonistic to us It is a book that is both disheartening and hopeful at the same time, with interesting and sympathetic characters The shifting perspectives in this story make it very interesting Had the entire thing been in Caleb s point of view it would have gotten tedious, but instead, we r

    Man, did I have a hard time with this book I started out really enjoying it, and I think that was the problem If I just hated it from the get go, when it started to go in strange directions that I didn t enjoy I would have just written off the whole experience and quit reading Instead, I got really frustrated that I wasn t able to follow the story I became invested in Ultimately, for me, reading this book was like trying to view a really beautiful painting at a museum but having your view continually obstructed b

    Although sent in the future, within a new world order, where climate change, wildfires and water shortages have triggered mass migration this is a very current novel regarding the subject matter The U.K is functioning well and is the place people s from Southern Europe head for in this dystopian future.Told in a series of events in the life of Caleb and narrated from the perspective of multiple voices he comes into contact with on his journey.Initially travelling with his Mother he is later separated and although only 12 yea

    Thank you to NetGalley and 47North for providing me with an ARC for this book in exchange for an honest review.Though I did enjoy this book quite a bit, some things really bothered me First of all, this book is told from multiple perspectives but we do have a main character that we see than the others that did not work for me Though I understand the choice as it allowed the reader to get info about the world the book is set in that our mc doesn t know, a lot of it seemed unnecessary and I was just left mostly in the unknown abou

    At some point in the future, maybe a decade, maybe a century, an indentured illegal refugee Caleb is sewing shirts up on the rooftop of an apartment building in an Enclave part slum, part suburb ringing aa wealthier city, housing people who are not quite desirable, people who have chosen to not, or not been allowed, to be microchipped with a chip which makes them better citizens, suppressing the urges which make them wasteful and unpredictable members of society Caleb has come from Spain, a country where water is now scarce, hoping for

    Thanks to NetGalley for an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.So, I am a massive dystopian novel lover and always have been I love the many different approaches that folks take, and they often are extremely timely for what is happening in the world.This story takes place in England after what seems like a major climate crisis throughout Europe It follows the main character, Caleb, and his journey from refugee to human trafficking to escapee, etc and the many folks he meets along the way.While it was a fairly quick read, I will

    From netgalley quick review for the moment was intrigued by the climate change angle so picked it up not YA you don t get the close relationship with the narrator typical of YA, and the narrator is 12 for most of the book super depressingmoral of the story seems to be that view spoiler everything and everyone sucks so you should just go back to slavery hide spoiler

    4.5 stars This was a pleasant surprise, as I ve never heard of this author before and I picked it up on a whim from a NetGalley offer I would describe this as speculative fiction It feels like it could take place anywhere from ten to fifty years in the future, as climate change accelerates northward European migration and countries such as France have to adjust and react There are a few tech advances described although the story would probably stand up without them.Each chapter is from the point of view of a different character, many of whom only
