Dealing in Dreams | Lilliam Rivera
10 posts | 9 read | 16 to read
The Outsiders meets Mad Max: Fury Road in this fast-paced dystopian novel about sisterhood and the cruel choices people are forced to make in order to survive. At night, Las Mal Criadas own these streets. Sixteen-year-old Nalah leads the fiercest all-girl crew in Mega City. That role brings with it violent throwdowns and access to the hottest boydega clubs, but Nala quickly grows weary of her questionable lifestyle. Her dream is to get off the streets and make a home in the exclusive Mega Towers, in which only a chosen few get to live. To make it to the Mega Towers, Nalah must prove her loyalty to the city’s benevolent founder and cross the border in a search of the mysterious gang the Ashé Riders. Led by a reluctant guide, Nalah battles crews and her own doubts but the closer she gets to her goal the more she loses sight of everything—and everyone—she cares about. Nalah must choose whether or not she’s willing to do the unspeakable to get what she wants. Can she discover that home is not where you live but whom you chose to protect before she loses the family she’s created for good?

My kiddo (far left) did a podcast episode with Pine Reads Review (an initiative in the English Dept at the UofA). The host, Christy, has a great perspective on YA Lit, & Matt Mendez brought the author perspective.

If this book isn‘t on your TBR, I highly recommend you add it, if for no other reason than for the time spent in a post-apocalyptic, girl-gang-run world where this sentence is true. Even amidst the high stakes, there‘s a really refreshing REST.

Okay nvm I finished it lol I think I struggled with the start but it drastically improved as the book went on. It felt very info dump right at the start just dropping all the world & politics very abruptly and all at once. Once everyone left the city, things REALLY picked up. Very "treat everyone equally" message along with the dangers of drugs

Round 2 of #MarchPreorderMadness - this is one I preordered way back in 2017! I think it's a real looker.

The last book I finished in 2018. An imaginative dystopia exploring family and sisterhood, gender roles, and addiction. Also girl gangs and adventures and some Mad Max vibes.

A pretty interesting read overall.
