Survival Colony  Nine
Survival Colony 9 by Joshua David Bellin


n a future world of dust and ruin, fourteen-year-old Querry Genn struggles to recover the lost memory that might save the human race.

Querry is a member of Survival Colony Nine, one of the small, roving groups of people who outlived the wars and environmental catastrophes that destroyed the old world. The commander of Survival Colony Nine is his father, Laman Genn, who runs the camp with an iron will. He has to--because heat, dust, and starvation aren't the only threats in this ruined world.

There are also the Skaldi.

Monsters with the ability to infect and mimic human hosts, the Skaldi appeared on the planet shortly after the wars of destruction. No one knows where they came from or what they are. But if they're not stopped, it might mean the end of humanity.

Six months ago, Querry had an encounter with the Skaldi--and now he can't remember anything that happened before then. If he can recall his past, he might be able to find the key to defeat the Skaldi.

He kept up a running commentary as I crawled around in the dirt searching for evidence. " It doesn't have to be much, " he reminded me. 

Top Ten is an original feature/weekly meme created here at

  3. Oh! I forgot about How to Say Goodbye in Robot. I really wish someone would do that lovely book a favor and redo the cover. Why pink? Why? Do you NOT want any teen guys to read it? Anyway, rant over! I am listening to Say What You Will now and enjoying it. Thanks for sharing! ~Megan

  4. I included Wild Awake in my list, too. That one was weird but I kinda loved it. I think it helps that I listened to the audio and got a better sense of the main character that way.
