Why I love it
Since I was little, I’ve always loved visiting the desert. From climbing mounds of dirt, to finding furniture-like rocks to lie on, to warming up under the hot sun… what’s not to love? Friends would remind me of the desert’s risks—dehydration, deadly creatures, painful sunburns—but I’ve continued to insist it’s one of the most peaceful places to be. That is, until I read Oasis, which takes place in the desert and features, among other things, a violent sandstorm and poisonous waters. Now, I’m sufficiently terrified of the desert.
By all measures, Alif is looking forward to a great summer. She’s got a fun and loyal group of friends; a ticket to Dubai; and a chance to dig for ancient artifacts alongside her friends and father. But when a sandstorm leaves the group injured, thirsty, and far from camp, their fun summer trip turns into an eerie quest for survival. Especially when the oasis they stumble upon might not be what it seems.
With the pace of a great mystery and the eerie world-building that makes you question what’s real and what’s not, this book will appeal to suspense and sci-fi fans alike. I won’t spoil the plot for you, but I will say that following Alif and company’s journey is a wild, creepy, and unpredictable ride.
