The Scavengers

By: Michael Perry

 Maggie, a.k.a. Ford Falcon, lives "outbubble".  That means her family chose to survive on their own without the assistance and safety the government promised.  That means that
Ford's family raises and grows their own food and scavenges for items to use or trade.  Add to these challenges solar bears, unpredictable weather, and GreyDevils.  Ford and her family rely on the expert help of their neighbors to survive.  One day, Ford's mom and dad disappear.  Suddenly, Ford must take all that she has learned and rescue her family.

Mrs. Senechal says:
I loved this book!  The author has created unique characters who you will love getting to know.  The setting of a world where you choose safety and prosperity OR freedom is very intriguing.  I enjoyed reading about all the accommodations that helped the characters to protect their belongings and provide for their needs.  The end of the story left a lot of questions, so I hope there will be a sequel with more adventures!
