O is for On a Clear Day by Walter Dean Myers
I know, I know ANOTHER Walter Dean Myers book!! I’m including this title because it’s one of the only ones of his that I haven’t read. So what am I waiting for?
ahlia is a Low Gater: a sheep in a storm, struggling to survive completely on her own. The Gaters live in closed safe communities, protected from the Sturmers, mercenary thugs. And the C-8, a consortium of giant companies, control global access to finance, media, food, water, and energy resources—and they are only getting bigger and even more cutthroat. Dahlia, a computer whiz, joins forces with an ex-rocker, an ex-con, a chess prodigy, an ex-athlete, and a soldier wannabe. Their goal: to sabotage the C-8. But how will Sayeed, warlord and terrorist, fit into the equation?
Based on the blurb, I have mixed feelings. I’m used to Myers writing gritty realistic urban novels but can he do sci fi? I dunno, but he’s WDM and he can do anything so I’m optimistic.
I can’t wait to read it!
Have you read it?
Can you think of a book that starts with O?
