Flight & Anchor by Nicole Kornher-Stace
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This novella does a lot of unexpected heavy lifting for the backstories of 06 and 22 (as seen in Nicole's other works such as Firebreak) and I'll just say it now: it was a delight.
Young kids getting into trouble, as only young kids who can outfight a tank can, all within a comfortable setting that is much like our own world of ultimate disposability, dealing with massive amounts of brainwashing, nasty authority figures, poverty, and a great heaping wallop of glorious friendship.
The novella stands just fine on its own two feet but it really dovetail's nicely with the expanded world. I'm very happy.
