For those of you (rightly) ticked at the novel “Revealing Eden”

I’m going to take this opportunity to plug Paolo Bacigalupi and his YA novels “Ship Breaker” and “The Drowned Cities”. These are fantastic, gripping YA novels that successfully deal with issues of race, class, poverty, and interpersonal relationships in a changed world. Maybe by giving interested readers a well constructed alternative, we can help readers enjoy a book both for its intense characters and story as well as for its important lessons.
