Book Review: Salvage by Alexandra Duncan

Salvage by Alexandra Duncan is the tale of a young woman’s journey from subservience to independence. Ava is born into a surprisingly conservative spacefaring culture and struggles to survive when her tribe condemns her.

I recommend it to anyone who’s looking for women’s literature, cli-fi, an intriguing look at a conservative spacefaring culture, or just a good read in general.
