"One of the most ambitious YA novels I've ever read."—Tommy Wallach, author of We All Looked Up
In a Cloud Atlas for teens--worlds collide with a mysterious alternate universe. For fans of authors like Marcus Sedgwick, Patrick Ness, Kelly Link, M. T. Anderson, and David Mitchell--who wonder what the future will bring.
Five teens, five futures: Dylan develops a sixth sense that allows him to glimpse another world. Ten years from now, Brixney must get more hits on her social media feed or risk being stuck in a debtors' colony. Thirty years from now, Epony scrubs her entire online profile from the web and goes "High-Concept." Sixty years from now, Reef struggles to survive in a city turned virtual game board. And more than one hundred years from now, Quinn uncovers the alarming secret that links them all. These are stories about a world that is destroying itself, and about the alternate world that might be its savior. Unless it’s just the opposite.
