About the Book
Montag's thrilling debut takes place in a future climate-change-altered world overrun by water, forcing what's left of humanity to live on the seas or in mountain colonies. Myra and her seven-year-old daughter, Pearl, have survived by fishing, trading, and avoiding opportunist raiders like the Lily Black pirates, who are known to abduct women and children. Myra has spent years tracking her older daughter, Row, who was taken by her father just before their home in Nebraska was destroyed. After searching without a lead, Myra manages to stop a member of the Lily Black from abducting Pearl, and before she kills him, he tells her that he saw Row in a northern colony. Myra is determined to find a way to get to Row, but everything is turned upside down when Pearl convinces her to rescue a stranded man, Daniel, who turns out to be a cartographer. As she grows to trust Daniel, Myra is determined to convince him to help them find Row, despite the many dangers they'll have to face. Anchored by a complicated, compelling heroine, this gripping, speculative, high-seas adventure is impossible to put down.--Kristine Huntley Copyright 2019 Booklist
