One of the most twisty, surprising, engaging page-turner YAs you’ll read this year—We Were Liars with sci-fi scope, Lost with a satisfying resolution.
Cee awoke on an abandoned island three years ago. With no idea of how she was marooned, she only has a rickety house, an old android, and a single memory: she has a sister, and Cee needs to find her.
STEM prodigy Kasey wants escape from the science and home she once trusted. The eco-city—Earth’s last unpolluted place—is meant to be sanctuary for those commited to planetary protection, but it’s populated by people willing to do anything for refuge, even lie. Now, she’ll have to decide if she’s ready to use science to help humanity, even though it failed the people who mattered most.
About the Author:
Joan He was born and raised in Philadelphia but still will, on occasion, lose her way. At a young age, she received classical instruction in oil painting before discovering that storytelling was her favorite form of expression. She studied Psychology and East Asian Languages and Cultures at the University of Pennsylvania and currently writes from a desk overlooking the Delaware River. Descendant of the Crane is her debut young adult fantasy.
This story is told by two POV, Cee and Kasey who are sisters. One sister, Cee is stranded in desert island where she woke up there for the last three years and doesn’t know how she ended up on the island. The other sister Kasey is in a city called “eco city” and is floating city. Cee is trying her best to find her sister and be united with her again.
The last month was not a good reading month and this was third book that read and was able to finished. The story started out slow and a little confusing at first and then when continue to read through the book it really started to speed up the pace. Joan He did a great job at the worldbuilding and going from writing fantasy to sci-fi. This was a very heart wreching and unpredictable story. I am glad that I decided to keep reading it to the end and was surprised how much I enjoy it.
If you love Joan He’s Descendant of the Crane, you would love her new adventure into sci-fi genre and will love this book. I would definitely recommend it.
