Welcome to Mailbox Monday, the weekly meme created by Marcia, formerly from The Printed Page, where book lovers share the titles they received for review, purchased, or otherwise obtained over the past week. Mailbox Monday currently is on tour, and this month’s host is chaotic compendiums.
Here’s what I received:
Population Over Age 19: 0
Welcome to the Wasteland
The citizens of Prin don’t have the problems that plague typical teens. At 15, they marry. At 17, they reproduce. And at 19, they die.
There’s also the looming threat of rampant disease, acid rain, starvation, and brutal attacks by the variants — hermaphroditic outcasts that live on the outskirts of Prin.
Esther thinks there’s more to life than toiling under the relentless sun. Her best friend is a variant, and she longs to join the fringe community, to escape the judgment of Levi, the corrupt ruler who controls the Source. When a mysterious stranger named Caleb arrives in town, shady pasts begin to unravel, and the two rebels realize that they must team together to fight for their lives and for the freedom of Prin. (publisher’s summary)
