My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Set in a post-apocalyptic world where the oceans have risen and drowned most of the land, this is a great YA book. The main character, Libby is clever and unflappable when things go wrong. I liked that she was acerbic and a little awkward in social situations, but completely calm and capable when dealing with medical crises. Cosimo, the hero, is very likable too. Their relationship makes the transition from distrust to friendly bickering to love.
The settings for the story – the floating city, the farmlands on what little land that is left and the Wastes are all very well thought out. Especially the Wastes – I loved the description of the huge cliffs made out of plastic waste.
An interesting and entertaining read. It’s so nice to see a strong and capable YA heroine too!
