SingingMary, December 12, 2011 (view all comments by SingingMary)
This is a FABULOUS book that I have read several times, and regularly recommend to friends. I have read many "post-apocalyptic" books and, unlike many, this one gives me hope for the future. Murphy's characters are unforgettable, and their creative and deeply principled non-violent response to the threat to the city is a great inspiration for me. All of that and there are great "laugh out loud" moments in the book. The "future" described in this book sounds like the "now" of the Occupy movement. Run, do not walk, to get a copy of this book. . .read it, and give it to all of your friends!
PS: and when you're done reading this book, check out all of Pat Murphy's other books. . .superb writing, intriguing characters, great mind-stretching creativity. . .I eagerly await her next book.

This is an adult sf novel, repackaged for YAs. It's a post-apocalyptic yarn about California after a plague has wiped out most of the population. Parts of Northern California have come under the sway of a general people call Four Star, who wants to rebuild America as an ultraconservative dictatorship. The denizens of San Francisco, on the other hand, have created an anarchist art colony and have no desire to have their way of life disrupted.

The whole thing's ever-so-slightly hippie-dippy, but it's an engaging story and I loved the characters. Plus I'm a sucker for post-apocalyptic scenarios.
