Ava, a teenage girl living aboard the male-dominated deep space merchant ship Parastrata, faces betrayal, banishment, and death. Taking her fate into her own hands, she flees to the Gyre, a floating continent of garbage and scrap in the Pacific Ocean, in this thrilling, surprising, and thought-provoking debut novel that will appeal to fans of Across the Universe, by Beth Revis, and The Handmaid’s Tale, by Margaret Atwood.

Why I’m Waiting
This book sounds extremely fascinating and honestly I think it could quite possibly my next favorite read. This lovely book touches on literary science fiction with a feminist twist, and it explores themes of choice, agency, rebellion, and family.
Ava is a teenage girl stuck in a male-dominate society aboard a deep space merchant boat…intrigued yet? because I know I am. To be honest, it sounds like it may have a little Ender’s Game feel to it and I can’t wait to read it (have I said that enough already—sorry, I am just really excited to read this book). Plus have the cover art is just enticing with all the blues and whites—it’s simple beautiful.
I have no doubt that this debut novel is going to be a MAJOR hit.
