Butler's vision of a crumbling, near-future California, wracked by climate change and beset by hordes of tweakers, is perfectly believable. But it's her heroine's unique and impassioned belief in the future humanity is capable of that elevates this book over its dystopian fellows. A powerful and though-provoking read.
