The Other Side of the Island

Honor and her family live on Island 365, where the sky is covered by a rigid enclosure that regulates the weather, and the population is governed by a mysterious ruler and her Corporation. In this world, the citizens who do not follow the rules eventually disappear and one day, Honor comes home to find her parents missing. Can she save them? Expect teens and mature tweens to breathlessly turn pages as they strain to find out. Like 1984 for the modern teenage set, this chilling look at a possible future reads like a rocket.
