A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. This thrilling companion to Paolo Bacigalupi's bestselling award-winner Shi p Breaker and Tool of War is a haunting and powerful story of loyalty, surv ival, and heart-pounding adventure. In a dark future America where violence, terror, and grief touch everyone, young refugees Mahlia and Mouse have managed to leave behind the war-torn l ands of the Drowned Cities by escaping into the jungle outskirts. But when they discover a wounded half-man--a bioengineered war beast named Tool--who is being hunted by a vengeful band of soldiers, their fragile existence qu ickly collapses. One is taken prisoner by merciless soldier boys, and the o ther is faced with an impossible decision: Risk everything to save a friend , or flee to a place where freedom might finally be possible. "Suzanne Collins may have put dystopian literature on the YA map with The H unger Games...but Bacigalupi is one of the genre's masters, employing inven tively terrifying details in equally imaginative story lines." --Los Angele s Times A 2012 Los Angeles Public Library Best Teen BookA 2013 YALSA Best Fiction f or Young Adults BookA 2013 CBC at Bank Street College Best Children's Books of the Year BookA 2013 Capitol Choices Noteworthy Titles for Children and Teens Book A Junior Library Guild SelectionA 2014 Tennessee Volunteer Book Award Nominee.
