Fantastic world building! Yay! A welcome change from my recent reading. (Lots of other stuff about this book is good, too:)

This book was really really good, and this cover is really really really wrong. As is the blurb.

This is a story about Ava, a girl raised in a spaceship in a very strict and patriarchal society. She breaks some rules and is forced to escape and flee to Earth in a mailship to avoid an honor killing. On Earth--specifically the floating city built over the plastic Gyre in the pacific--Perpétue, the captain of the mailship essentially adopts her while she is adjusting to the differences of earth gravity, and Ava learns to read and to fly a spaceship herself. Ava has an aunt in Mumbai, so when yet more disaster strikes, she and Perpétue's daughter head there to find her.

This is not the book that the cover is for--that is light and fluffy, and this book is serious and painful over and over again, but I had only meant to read a chapter before bed, and that was 2 hours ago. It was very very good.

Continues in the excellent universe that Salvage is set in, only this time, on a research vessel to the deep sound of space. Some of the plot mechanics make me itch, but the story was great, fast paced, and the cast is enjoyable diverse. I think it's the lack of consequences that I have a hard time with, given how the characters seem to struggle with those consequences that do occur, but that might just be a really good representation of how teen brains see the world differently.

Putting the "Dys" in dystopian, Duncan has written a scary, brave, profoundly disturbing and empowering sci-fi stand-alone book with a kick-ass main character.

There were things I did not love, but that made sense for a plot involving a cult that evolves on a starship. Well written, and hard to put down.
