Jeanne DuPrau’s The City of Ember meets Louis Sachar’s Holes in this imaginative and hilarious middle grade novel from New York Times bestselling author Michael Perry.

When the world started to fall apart, the government gave everyone two choices: move into the Bubble Cities … or take their chances outside. Maggie’s family chose to live in the world that was left behind. Deciding it’s time to grow up and grow tough, Maggie rechristens herself “Ford Falcon”—a name inspired by the beat-up car she finds at a nearby junkyard, the same junkyard where Ford’s family goes to scavenge for things they can use and barter with the other people who live “OutBubble.” Her family has been able to survive this brave new world by working together. But when Ford comes home one day to discover her home ransacked and her family missing, she must find the strength to rescue her loved ones with the help of some friends.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Michael Perry pulls out all the stops in this colorful tale. You gotta love Ford Falcon, an intrepid heroine who can pepper-bomb a solar bear while quoting Emily Dickinson. As her friend Toad might say: Le-dightful.”

    Katherine Applegate, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Newbery Medal book The One and Only Ivan

  • “This brave, smart, funny, independent young hero is totally unlike anyone I’ve seen before, and she uses her wits to survive in a world unlike anything I could have dreamt up.”

    Wendy Mass, New York Times bestselling author of The Candymakers

  • “The unique and interesting cast of multidimensional primary and secondary characters are the narrative’s strength…this was an enjoyable read and Maggie is a strong, brave, adventurous, and resourceful role model for younger readers.”

    School Library Journal

  • “With plenty of contemporary issues wrapped around a good story, this new take on familiar post-apocalyptic imagery with a science-gone-awry theme should make fertile ground for book-club discussions and teen-survivalist daydreams. Sufficient unanswered questions exist to fuel a sequel, but there’s no cliffhanger—Perry provides a satisfying closing for his restless heroine.”
