Read full description of the books Stray - 2012 ABNA Entry:By 2101, New York City has sunk below sea level. 16-year-old Darryl runs a gondola on the canals that fill the old streets. She must act and live as a boy to escape her past. Besides, it's safer to be male in the city's underbelly, where she dwells to avoid cops now that homelessness has been made illegal. If she's caught, she'll be thrown into the State Houses. And everyone knows that the homeless who disappear behind those barbed wire fences are never heard from again. But when someone jacks her gondola and uses it to dump the mayor's body, Darryl becomes the prime murder suspect in a federal case. With half the city on her tail, she finds an unlikely ally in Adita, the daredevil daughter of a wealthy senator. Darryl doesn't like to rely on anyone, yet she needs Adita's wealth and technology if she wants to prove her innocence. But as they work together to find the true culprits, the secrets they unearth prove bigger than one seedy mayor's death. To clear her name, Darryl must follow the trail of evidence straight into the one place she's fought so hard to avoid: the State Houses.Stray will appeal to young adult readers who enjoy gritty futuristic settings (such as in Marie Lu's Legend), murder mystery novels, or stories with a touch of gender-bending romance ala Twelfth Night.
Read information about the authorEllen Goodlett writes because otherwise she would spend her days plotting to take over the world. She figures that the former would benefit humanity ever so slightly more than the latter (which would be disastrous and involve a lot of cats in government positions). Her debut novel, RULE, about three girls competing for the throne in a fantasy world, will publish in fall 2018 with Little Brown.
