Dystopian Sci-Fi Books for Young Adults

Marisol Blaise was rescued as a child to grow up in a sophisticated, underwater station deep in the Pacific Ocean, a structure that sustains the last gasp of humanity and its technological achievements. The aboveworld is a scorched ruin, and only a few thousand humans—all living beneath the oceans—still exist, or so she's told. Marisol, about to be assigned her lifelong career at the station, has worked hard to become one of the elite divers of a team called the Cuviers, so far comprised entirely of men. She's the adopted daughter of the station's leader, and it seems she will get her wish, but darker forces conspire against her, both on the station and above on dry land.

"Ingeniously configured and persuasively detailed, this biosphere has heft... Refreshingly original, this dystopia delivers more than a dash of hope." ~Kirkus Reviews

"Shyback has created an all-too-believable future with a consummate eye for detail and realism in this, her debut novel." ~Cindy Matthews, Authorlink  

"AQUEOUS had me on the edge of my seat... and I did not want to the novel to end. I am looking forward to what is next for AQUEOUS." ~Jan Farnworth, YA Book Central

"AQUEOUS is a coming-of-age novel set against the harshly exotic backdrop of a life beneath the sea in an all-too-possible post-apocalyptic future... A fascinating debut, and one that will make you think." ~Kerry Anne King, bestselling author of Improbably Yours
