Salvage is a thrilling, surprising, and
thought-provoking debut novel that will appeal to fans of Across the
Universe by Beth Revis and The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret
Atwood. This is literary science fiction with a feminist twist, and it explores
themes of choice, agency, rebellion, and family.
Ava, a teenage girl living aboard the male-dominated,
conservative deep-space merchant ship Parastrata, faces betrayal,
banishment, and death. 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
