Summary from Goodreads:
Ava, a teenage girl living aboard the male-dominated, conservative deep space merchant ship Parastrata, faces betrayal, banishment, and death. Taking her fate into her own hands, she flees to the Gyre, a floating continent of garbage and scrap in the Pacific Ocean.
This is a sweeping and harrowing novel about a girl who can't read or write or even withstand the forces of gravity. What choices will she make? How will she build a future on an earth ravaged by climate change?
The start of the book lagged a bit, but by the 100th page I was sucked into the story (as I dealt with the fact that her family was going to murder her, chuck her into space, for sleeping with a boy, scary). The reason why it took so long to get into the story for me was because of the way they speak is pretty different. But when she is on Earth they don't have the same way of speaking, so I liked the Earth parts a little more.
This story was so unique and creepy that it had me reading right up to the end.
I recommend this book if you enjoy science-fiction and want something different.
