Such excellent dystopia! So far from the cookie-cutter dystopian books that are everywhere. Excellent characters, Fen de la Guerre is actually the BEST. Strongest voice I've read in a while.

No romance! Which is a relief since Fen is sixteen and dorkward-but-earnest scientist Daniel is way older. No romance, but a whole lot of love, and two vital, life altering missions.

Some warning for rape, though.

First few chapters were great. But then just as things started rolling it bit the biscuit with some completely implausible strangeness (which is saying a lot for sci-fi)...too bad... had potential...

I liked how this takes place way in the future when New Orleans had to face more hurricanes even harsher than Katrina. Those left in Orleans have delta fever and are separated from the rest of the world. Fen must get her tribe leader's baby over the wall where she can have a somewhat better life, without the fear of brothels or those who would use her as as a blood slave. Fen doesn't know who she can trust, and those she does can stab her in the back and with a baby it's even more difficult getting to the border. Though I liked this book, and learning about the different blood types, the tribe speak, Fen used, became annoying after a while and probably wasn't really needed. The theme throughout was New Orleans will rise again and heal herself.
