American WarBook - 2017
From Library Staff
Liz G.: "Imagine an America following a second Civil War fought over fossil fuel and climate change. Bleak but beautiful, 'American War' explores what happens when the fabric of a democracy unravels and individuals become radicalized."

SummaryAdd a Summary
Sarat Chestnut is born by the sea, into contested territory between the Reds and Blues that are fighting the Second American Civil War. Her world is wracked by climate change, and by the South’s refusal to give up on fossil fuels. Much of the Southern US coast is now underwater, and out-of-control drones crawl the skies. When her father is killed in a bombing, Sarat’s mother and her three children flee to Camp Patience, a refugee camp on the North/South border. There they scrape together a life always on the edge of dissolution, and the children grow up with the question of what the future can possibly hold for them. It is here that Sarat meets the mentor who will shape her mind, and turn her to his own ends.
