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 Can't Wait: When I first saw the cover, I knew this was something that I had to get my hands on it. After reading the synopsis, I was hooked. I'm a huge fan of Margaret Atwood, so anything that's comparable to her has my interest. Also, I'm always looking for a great sci fi YA!
