Summary
It's 2075, and a second American Civil War is underway as three southern states refuse to give up fossil fuels, despite rising waters and summers that last from March to December. As coastal refugees pour into the Midwest, young Sarat and her family seek shelter in a Mississippi camp. She grows into a warrior for the Southern cause, delivering violence until her eventual capture. Debut author Omar El Akkad draws upon his journalism background to craft a plausible and terrifying dystopian tale. -- Description by Gillian Speace
