A NovelBook - 2019
In a near-future New York City in which both global warming and a tremendous economic divide are making the city unlivable for many, a huge superstorm hits leaving behind only those those who had nowhere else to go and no way to get out. Here Makayla, a 24-year-old woman who works at the convenience store chain that's overtaken the city; Jesse, an 18-year-old genderqueer anarchist punk who lives in an abandoned IRT station in the Bronx; and an unnamed, mysterious street artist who paints the suffering of those left behind into the world's consciousness all struggle to rebuild their lives in a city that has left them for dead. When they carve out a small space of reprieve from an abandoned luxury condo, it is only a matter of time before those who own the building come back to claim what is theirs.
