About the Author

Joan He was born and raised in Philadelphia but still will, on occasion, lose her way. At a young age, she received classical instruction in oil painting before discovering that stories were her favorite kind of art. She studied psychology and Chinese history at the University of Pennsylvania and currently writes from a desk overlooking the city waterfront. She is the author of Descendant of the Crane, her young adult debut novel.

Reviews

I fell in love with this haunting, futuristic world and the sisters searching for each other in it. Joan He's words will stay with you long after the final page. - Marie Lu, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Skyhunter

Much like the floating cities within its pages, this book is a perfect synthesis of high-tech futurism and dreamlike imagery. Gripping, heartfelt, and joyously cerebral, this is a story to dive into and let its twisting currents pull you into a strange, clever, and startlingly original world. Emily Suvada, author of This Mortal Coil

In a climate-ravaged future, the love between two sisters is the only hope for humanity's future. This is sci-fi at its best: floating cities, kindness and desert islands! Lauren James, author of The Reckless Afterlife of Harriet Stoker


Interweaving Cee's immediate first-person voice and Kasey's more removed third-person narration, He crafts an intricate, well-paced rumination on human nature, choice, and consequence. - Publishers Weekly, starred review

A melancholy, heartbreaking story of a young woman who loved her sister enough to survive years of horrors in order to get back to her... It's painful stuff, beautifully written, and He gives that suffering the space it deserves in this reflective novel. - The Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books (BCCB), recommended

An intriguing foray into a devastating future--and yet one where hope abides. - Kirkus
