If you are still looking for a good book for the month of May, Apple Books and Kobo have both selected WASTE TIDE by Chen Qiufan as a Best of the Month book pick.
WASTE TIDE follows Mimi, a migrant waste worker on Silicon Isle, a small island off the coast of China where towering heaps of electronics are sent to be recycled. As Mimi struggles to carve out a better life on the polluted island, there are many forces—ruthless local gangs, ecoterrorists, money-hungry American investors, and a Chinese-American interpreter searching for his roots—that threaten to change life as she knows it. As the forces collide, Mimi must decide if she will be a pawn in someone else’s game or change the rules altogether.
Apple Books Review praised WASTE TIDE as “imaginative and all the more haunting for being rooted in reality.”
