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.
I just read Tin Star by Cecil Castellucci and this sounds sort of similar, so I'm interested. I'm also intrigued by the Across the Universe comparison, but not The Handmaid's Tale comparison. That book creeps me out so much. But I like the sound of this. And I hear it's a standalone. :)
