Pump Up Your Book is pleased to bring you James Zerndt’s The Cloud Seeders virtual book tour January 6 – 31! A list of the other blogs participating can be found here.
First off I'd like to say that I thoroughly enjoyed reading this Young Adult/Teen/ Dystopian/ Science Fiction book about a futuristic society in the United States where water is at a premium and it never seems to rain. Normally I do not read YA books but after having read this book I may have to think about reading some more of this genre.
When Thomas is left to raise his younger brother Dustin he manages to get a job at the Sustainability Unit and is helping his brother to learn the ropes as well. They ultimately take off on vacation with a girl that Thomas knows to supposedly find their parents. Their adventures along the way are interesting to say the least and they meet up with a lot of interesting people who don't exactly agree with the government. Dustin finds out the truth about his parents (no, I can't tell you!!) and ultimately helps with the over turn of the government. This book does end on a happy note-actually a couple of happy notes. Yup-another 5!!

Serve Your Country, Conserve Your Water, Observe Your Neighbor
This is the slogan of the Sustainability Unit and of a country gone eco-hysterical. After nearly twelve months without rain and the hinges of the world barely still oiled, Thomas and his younger brother, Dustin, set out across a drought-ridden landscape in search of answers. What they discover along the way will change their lives, and their country, forever.
The Cloud Seeders weaves humor and heartache, as well as poetry and science, into a unique novel that defies categorization.
