It's been a bit.

I recently tore through Lizard Radio, a science fiction YA featuring a gender-nonbinary protagonist in a sketchily-defined dystopian future. The worldbuilding specifics may be sketchy but the immediate setting -- an agricultural summer camp for teens -- is thoroughly imagined, and the characters are, too. I have a small issue with the death of one character (let's say it too closely echoes the death of Rue in Hunger Games), but other than that, I'd recommend it for its gender stuff, its interesting setting, and its thematic wrestling with individuality vs. community and such. This won the 2105 Tiptree, btw.

Now I am reading The Vegetarian. More on that soon, but so far thumbs up.
