Taking her fate into her own hands, she flees to the Gyre, a floating continent of garbage and scrap in the Pacific Ocean. But just because Ava is the daughter of Parastata's captain doesn't mean she can read or write or even withstand the forces of gravity. What choices will she make? How will she build a future on an earth ravaged by climate change?This is a sweeping and harrowing novel that is not to be missed.
