    Delacorte Press, 9780593484975, February 27, 2024 (Young Adult)

    “Are you a lover of upsetting dystopian thrillers? Are you looking for dark and wild adventures with cinematic twists? Snowglobe has intriguing climate themes and inequity combined with riveting action and characters. Reserve a whole night to read this one cover to cover in one sitting — you will need it!”

    —Molly Olivo, Child’s Play, Washington, D.C.

    “Lofty comps are going to come in for this book — The Hunger Games, Squid Game, Snowpiercer, The Truman Show, Moon. None are quite the perfect comp, but this book is completely deserving of such high praise. This young adult science fiction novel set in a fully realized world is at once enthralling and abhorrent. To say I loved this book would be an understatement. It is a fantastic story, and is filling multiple gaps in the market, as there is not enough young adult sci-fi, and there are even fewer young adult translated novels. This is one of my favorite novels of 2024, and 2024 is still more than four months away!”

    —Paul Swydan, The Silver Unicorn Bookstore, Acton, MA

    “I am not generally a sci-fi reader but this book grabbed me! It’s a chilling tale of a dystopian future in which those who live in the Snowglobe trade comfort for privacy. Their lives are broadcast on TV constantly and in exchange, they get warmth and safety. Chobahm longs to be a Director, the most coveted role in Snowglobe. When her chance to get out of her family’s poverty arises, she leaps without looking, regardless of the cost.”

    —Andi Richardson, Fountain Bookstore, Richmond, VA
