Praise

*A Los Angeles Times Best Book of 2008*
*A Washington Post Best Book of 2008*
*A Village Voice Best Book of 2008*

“This beautifully written novel is a dystopian page-turner, using well-worn tropes to confront adult issues such as authoritarian government and global warming.” — Washington Post

“Allegra Goodman develops her world with deft strokes, bringing together the linguistic traditions of the dystopian novel with those of classic post-disaster stories…” — New York Times Book Review

“A dark vision rendered in wonderful and imaginative detail, The Other Side of the Island is a cautionary tale that will likely be embraced by left-leaning, politically aware and environmentally conscious teens and adults alike, regardless of whether or not they read sci-fi.” — Los Angeles Times

“From Kaaterskill Falls to Intuition, Goodman’s fiction proves that she can tackle big subjects with unobtrusively graceful and perceptive prose. Her first YA offering, a dystopian eco-fantasy in which a malevolent Corporation lulls North America’s few remaining inhabitants into complacency with memory altering substances, misinformation, fake skies and a leader named Earth Mother, is a top-notch genre piece…” —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“Gripping and creepily prescient.” —Village Voice
