When I first read The House of Scorpion years ago I was instantly smitten. And I was super excited to read the sequel. Well, it’s a good thing that I didn’t hold my breath until it came out, as author Nancy Farmer
made me wait TEN YEARS to read about the continuing adventures of the clone Matteo Alacran. But it was worth the wait! The Lord of Opium catches up with Matt exactly where we left him and takes the reader along with him for quite a ride. Now I know you might be asking yourself, ”But what’s it about Ms. G?”. And I wish I could tell you without ruining the story, but that is so hard to do! I can tell you that it is a dystopian story ( so fans of The Hunger Games, Divergent, The Giver etc will love it ) set in a future North America, and that it is very possibly the BEST SERIES EVER, but besides that you are just going to have to trust me and READ THEM ASAP!
Ms.G is the librarian at the Malone Middle School in Malone, NY.
