The Secret Under My Skin by Janet McNaughton

Set in the future, things are very difficult for Blay Raintree. She is currently in a government work camp where her work takes her to the local dump to find anything usable. But when Blay is picked to tutor the 'bio-indicator' her life takes some unexpected changes. This is a great book for strong readers -they many need help dealing with the concept of the 'technocaust'- what happened when technology tried to take over the world.

  1. This book was excellent. It was well written and suspenseful. It is definitely challenging for some intermediate students unless they are serious about sci-fi. It might go well with "The Uglies" series.
