    "In a near-future northern settlement, a handful of climate
    change survivors find their fates intertwined in this
    mesmerizing and transportive novel in the vein of Station
    Eleven and The Power.

    "America, 2049: Summer temperatures are intolerably high, the
    fossil fuel industry has shut down, and humans are implanted
    with a `Flick' at birth, which allows them to remain
    perpetually online. The top echelons of society live in
    Floating Cities off the coast, while people on the mainland
    struggle to survive. For Rose, working as a hostess in the
    city's elite club feels like her best hope for a better future.

    "When a high-profile client offers Rose a job as an escort at a
    fledgling company in northern Canada called Camp Zero-a source
    of fresh, clean air and cool temperatures-in return for a home
    for her displaced mother and herself, she accepts it. But in
    the north, all is not as it seems.

    "Through skillfully entwined perspectives, including a young
    professor longing to escape his wealthy family and a group of
    highly trained women engaged in climate surveillance at a Cold
    War era research station, the fate of the Camp and its
    inhabitants comes into stunning relief. Atmospheric, original,
    and utterly gripping, Camp Zero interrogates the seductive and
    chilling notion of a utopia; asks who and what will survive as
    global tensions rise; and imagines how love may sustain us.
