On a Clear Day

Walter Dean Myers

Award-winning author Myers’s (Monster, 2004) last book is set in 2035 America where people with money, The Gaters, live in closed communities, safe from the Sturmers, roving gangs of thugs. The C-8, a consortium of giant companies that control global access to finance, media, food and water, is getting bigger and even more cutthroat. Sixteen-year-old Dahlia is a Low Gater, struggling to survive completely on her own. A computer whiz, she joins forces with six other teens, each selected for their unique skills. The ragtag group must learn to trust one another and work together if they ever hope to sabotage the corrupt C-8.
