Orleans
Orleans | Sherri L. Smith
First came the storms. Then came the Fever. And the Wall. After a string of devastating hurricanes and a severe outbreak of Delta Fever, the Gulf Coast has been quarantined. Years later, residents of the Outer States are under the assumption that life in the Delta is all but extinctbut in reality, a new primitive society has been born. Fen de la Guerre is living with the O-Positive blood tribe in the Delta when they are ambushed. Left with her tribe leaders newborn, Fen is determined to get the baby to a better life over the wall before her blood becomes tainted. Fen meets Daniel, a scientist from the Outer States who has snuck into the Delta illegally. Brought together by chance, kept together by danger, Fen and Daniel navigate the wasteland of Orleans. In the end, they are each others last hope for survival. Sherri L. Smith delivers an expertly crafted story about a fierce heroine whose powerful voice and firm determination will stay with you long after youve turned the last page.

The mason jar mug says “Book worm and proud” on it (from a previous #owlcrate). The book is a #clifi dystopia set after a series of hurricanes has destroyed the Gulf Coast and an epidemic spreads through the region, causing the U.S. to “withdraw governance of the affected states.” They put up a wall and leave the people to fend for themselves.

Slajaunie Sounds interesting and about my home! 6mo

I wanted to read this book, because it was about a dystopian New Orleans. The scary thing was I could actually picture something like that happening. This book was really good.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #Orleans #SherriLSmith #NewOrleans #book #books #booktoday #bookish #bookishfeatures #booksoflitsy #bookphoto #bookphotograph #bookporn #bookphotography #bookart #bookaddict #bookaddicts #bookaddiction #bookaholic #bookshelf #bookshelves #bookdesign #bookfeatures ❣️

In addition to OwlCrate, I treat myself to Quarterly's YA Box, too. And this quarter's selections seem SO GOOD. #orleans #sherrilsmith

Mehso-so

New Orleans has been ravaged by multiple hurricanes post-Katrina. A new illness - Delta Fever - has infected there remaining inhabitants and resulted in the area being first quarantined and then expelled from the US. Those that remain live in tribes by blood type to survive the elements and the fever. Loved the concept, but as sometimes happens with YA, I found the book only so-so. My teen son, tho, is going to love it!

Titania Oh... And let me add how refreshing it was to read a YA book with a strong female protagonist and NO romance! Thumbs up for that. (edited) 2y

Orleans is a post-apocalyptic fiction set on the Gulf coast which had been quarantined after a series of devastating hurricanes that resulted in a even more disastrous disease-a powerful bloodborne viruse Delta Fever. The individuals who still live in Orleans are organized by blood type. Young Fen has one mission-to save her chieftan's baby who died in childbirth.
This was an intense, realistic story of survival in the bleakest of the worlds.
★★★★

Probably my favorite book I've had to read so far for this class. A twist to the dystopian girl and an ending that leaves you wanting more.

This was a quick read. As someone who was in Louisiana for Katrina, I find myself reading a lot of fiction and non-fiction based on this area after the storm. This book was a unique take on what could happen if we run out of time to clean up and get back on our feet between hurricanes.

Soscha I read this last year. The ending seems to set up for s sequel (trilogy, most likely--it's always the trilogy) but I'm not sure that's happened yet? 3y
CleverGirl I didn't even think to check! 3y
LindaGrace812 I loved this book. I'd be happy if it were the first of three! 3y

Slow beginning, but the second half moves fast and keeps a good pace.
