Stranger

by Sherwood Smith, Rachel Manija Brown
Release date: November 7, 2014
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, young adult

Welcome to speculative fiction's new frontier!

Decades ago, the United States underwent the Change — suddenly, all electricity was gone, and people developed unusual powers. Society fell apart. People came together in small enclaves, fighting to create new cities in a land with no rules. Las Anclas, in what was once Southern California, is one of those cities. When Ross, a teenage prospector, comes to town, he throws Las Anclas’s existing tensions into high relief, leading to shifting allegiances between those with powers and those who prefer “pure blood.” Fast-paced, enormously cinematic, and full of inventive world-building, diverse characters, and moral complexity, Stranger is speculative fiction and its best — and its most true to our lives.
