Nell Crane has never held a boyA??s hand.
In a city devastated by an epidemic, where survivors are all missing partsA??an arm, a leg, an eyeA??Nell has always been an outsider. Her father is the famed scientist who created the biomechanical limbs that everyone now uses. But sheA??s the only one with her machinery on the inside: her heart. Since the childhood operation, she has ticked. Like a clock, like a bomb. And as her community rebuilds, everyone is expected to contribute to the societyA??s good . . . but how can Nell live up to her fatherA??s revolutionary ideas when she has none of her own?
Then she finds a lost mannequinA??s hand while salvaging on the beach, and inspiration strikes. Can Nell build her own companion in a world that fears advanced technology? The deeper she sinks into this plan, the more she learns about her cityA??and her father, who is hiding secret experiments of his own.
Sarah Maria GriffinA??s haunting literary debut will entrance fans of Patrick NessA??s Chaos Walking series, Paolo BacigalupiA??s Ship Breaker, and Emily St. John MandelA??s Station Eleven.
