Glory O'Briens History of the Future

Glory O'Briens History of the Future

A.S. King

I'm not sure how to talk about this book without sounding crazy but here goes: Glory O'Brien and her best friend, Ellie (who she doesn't even like) have just consumed the dust of a petrified bat that they found outside. This causes them to have premonitions about the people with whom they come into contact. Ellie mostly sees the past but Glory can see the future. And it's grim for women. An insanely smart dissection of that dirtiest of "F" words - Feminism. A book I'd give to teenagers and adults alike. Just so fantastic I can't believe it's the first time I'm reading King but it won't be the last.
