* "Smith has woven an unpredictable, gross, and prescient rumination on modernity, media consumption, and machine-aided communication... Those delving into Smith's zany dystopia will find much to laugh and gasp at, including comedia and serious musings upon sex and violence. But most of all, they will find many deep, essential questions worth pondering."--Booklist, STARRED review
[A] sci-fi romp.--Kirkus Reviews
Smith's trademark humor and gonzo storytelling is on full display here... a story about what makes us human.--School Library Journal
Smith's ambitious world-building, which features extended metaphorical riffs on consumerism, class, social media outrage, sexual harassment, and violence, is wildly creative.--Horn Book Magazine
Brand new YA fiction from the extraordinary mind of New York Times bestselling author Andrew Smith . . .
Cager has been transported to the Tennessee, a giant lunar-cruise ship, to help him shake his Woz addiction. Meanwhile, Earth, in the midst of thirty simultaneous wars, burns to ash beneath them. As the robots on board The Tennessee become increasingly insane and cannibalistic, and Earth becomes a toxic wasteland, Cager and his friends have to wonder if they’ll be stranded alone in space forever.
In his new novel, Andrew Smith, Printz Honor author of Grasshopper Jungle, will make you laugh, cry, and consider what it really means to be human.
