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. But just because Ava is the daughter of Parastata's captain doesn't mean she can 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?

"Alexandra Duncan has created a dark future that is at once utterly remote and disturbingly familiar. Johanna ParkerÕs perceptive, energetic narration makes the fantastic seem real and emotionally relevant for listeners of all ages. Parastrata Ava has assumed a position of immense responsibility and danger within her fatherÕs space community, but when she realizes just how big the universe is, and the number of choices that have been denied her, she finds the courage to defy everyone and carve a life of her own. Parker makes the fear and wonder in ParastrataÕs journey tangible and creates a supporting cast of readily identifiable, sympathetic characters. Parker is a calm and steady guide for listeners through this haunting, ominous, and ultimately captivating world. B.E.K. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
