Wasteland

Description

Nel and her village in the Wastes survive solely on the food they steal from hijacked cargo trucks headed to the Oasis. But when the Oasis finally tracks them down and bombs her village as retribution, Nel is separated from her family and must comb the Wastes on her own to find them.

Theo, who has been hijacking trucks with Nel for years, wonders if they’ve doomed themselves to a life of violence. But when the bomb destroys their village, he sees past the grief and anger around him, spotting an opportunity to start over. To discover something brighter and sweeter with Nel—if only he can find her.

Meanwhile, in the Oasis, a boy named Daniel starts to wonder if the girl he’s falling for is keeping secrets. He's desperate to learn more about her, but his efforts have consequences that reverberate across both the Oasis and the Wastes.
