More grounded than your average dystopia, and a harrowing look at the life of child soldiers.

This companion novel to the Printz Award-winning Ship Breaker takes place in a dystopian future America, where rising sea levels have devastated the Gulf region and barbaric militias rule huge chunks of territory. Though it has science-fiction elements, such as gene-spliced “half-man” dog warriors, the world of The Drowned Cities is scarily plausible.
