Half way through as didn’t manage to finish this in 2020... still loving it though — a dystopian future imagined where cities are too polluted to live so a community tries to survive in the wilderness — the point of view just shifted from the mother to the daughter so I’m once again into this. Just need to stay awake long enough to finish a chapter! 😆 Edit, Jan 30: finally finished this now and couldn’t put it down for the second half. Really loved the point of view of the protagonist’s daughter who has grown up in the wilderness and has a very animalistic survivalist point of view of the community and leadership. Wasn’t so keen on the epilogue which shifts to first person and doesn’t really add much. Loved the exploration of mother-daughter relationship and how leadership can work, and fail. Def recommend!
