#11: Camp Zero by Michelle Min Sterling

In a dystopian future where climate change has broiled large swaths of the U.S., a group of people in a far northern location try to build a Utopian society in Michelle Min Sterling's Camp Zero.

Sterling's story is told from multiple points of view--a group of female soldiers on a mission with shrouded motives, a prostitute with a secret, a teacher who finds his new job isn't exactly what he thought--with a lot of admirable world-building.  The plot rockets along and has a couple of third act surprises.

Nicely done near-future sci-fi with sharp critiques of society.  Recommended.

I checked this out from the Morrisson-Reeves Library in Richmond, Indiana.
