The Other Side of the Island by Allegra Goodman
Recommended for: Grades 6 and up

Honor and her parents have been forced to live on an island controlled by the rules of Earth Mother, who has made the world “safe.” Honor longs to fit in, but her parents are “unpredictable” – doing forbidden things like going out after curfew, stargazing and even having an illegal second child. At school, Honor meets Helix, who hints at problems with their perfect world. Soon Honor’s life caves in when her parents are “taken”. Now officially an orphan, she must fend for herself and her brother, while searching for her parents whereabouts and answers to the mysteries of the island.
