“Quirk and charm give way to a serious exploration of the dangers of complacency in this delightful, thought-provoking Orwellian fantasy…. By turns zany and heartfelt, this tale of found family is hopeful to its core. Readers will revel in Klune’s wit and ingenuity.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

More praise for RIOT BABY:

“Onyebuchi (WAR GIRLS) sheds light on a world of harsh familiarity and fantastical originality with his incredible worldbuilding and devastating prose. Stark, sharp, and brutal, this story will burn in readers’ minds long after the last page.”–Library Journal, starred review

“This staggering story is political speculative fiction at its finest.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
