Book summary

Cynthia Kadohata explores human relationships in a Los Angeles of the future, where rich and poor are deeply polarized and where water, food, and gas, not to mention education, cannot be taken for granted. There is an intimate, understated, even gentle quality to Kadohata's writingthis is not an apocalyptic dystopiathat makes it difficult to shrug off the version of the future embodied in her book.
