Author: Marcus Sedgwick

Rating: 8.5/10 (What this means)

Publication: 2013

Recommendation: Yes- Read it!

My Reading Method: April 2014 Hardcover

From Goodreads:

“Laureth Peak’s father has taught her to look for recurring events, patterns, and numbers–a skill at which she’s remarkably talented. Her secret: She is blind. But when her father goes missing, Laureth and her 7-year-old brother Benjamin are thrust into a mystery that takes them to New York City where surviving will take all her skill at spotting the amazing, shocking, and sometimes dangerous connections in a world full of darkness. She Is Not Invisible is an intricate puzzle of a novel that sheds a light on the delicate ties that bind people to each other.”

The Drowned Cities by Paolo Bacigalupi (Ship Breaker #2)
My Rating: 4 of 5 Stars

Genre: Young Adult, Science Fiction, Post Apocalyptic, Dystopian
Paolo Bacigalupi: Site | Twitter | Facebook | Goodreads

Ship Breaker, Bacigalupi’s first young adult novel, was a Michael L. Printz Award winner, a National Book Award finalist, and a Locus Award winner.

“In the dark future America where violence, terror, and grief touch everyone, young refugees Mahlia and Mouse have managed to leave behind the war-torn lands of the Drowned Cities by escaping into the jungle outskirts. But when they discover…
