Freakling by Lana Krumwiede

FREAKLING cover web use

A thrilling, fast-paced dystopian novel about the dangers of unchecked power and the dilemmas facing a boy torn between two ways of life.

Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books: “Reminiscent of Le Guin’s Gifts or Lowry’s The Giver in its moral curiosity and understated complexity, this debut novel builds to a startling, satisfying resolution that opens up to a new universe of possibilities that readers will be eager to imagine. Looking for a dystopia book that runs a little younger than the usual suspects? Look no further.”

Margaret Peterson Haddix: “Freakling is that perfect combination of thought-provoking and entertaining. Readers will marvel at Taemon’s world and thrill with him as he discovers his own powers, limitations—and choices. What an impressive debut for Lana Krumwiede!”
