Want an engaging #CliFi novel that will make you question the world? Well then, read The New Wilderness by Diane Cook!

I absolutely love this book! Diane Cook’s writing style really whisks me away to the future, while also grounding me in the present. She outlines issues that are extremely relevant now and suspends them into the future. She allows the reader to evaluate the impact of humans on the earth and gives us a glimpse into what our future could look like. This can be eerie but also fascinating because there is a reality in this dystopian future. The flashbacks that look at Bea’s mother’s life are especially eerie because she lived in the same time period as we are living now. The fact that this dystopian fantasy could be humanities future is very disconcerting.
