Brr is it cold in here or is that just the chills running down our spines from our February book club pick, Camp Zero by Min Sterling? An instant New York Times bestseller and a Today Show #ReadwithJenna Book Club Pick, Camp Zero is an electrifying page-turner set in an American building project in the not-so-distant future, in the far North of Canada where nothing is as it seems.
You’ll be introduced to Rose who, in a desperate move to help her climate-displaced Korean immigrant mother, makes a deal to travel to Camp Zero and spy on its architect in exchange for housing. When she arrives, she immediately meets another newcomer. Grant is a college professor and is determined to flee his affluent family’s shady legacy.
Eventually, the pair realize there is more to the architect of Camp Zero than they thought and start to suspect that an alarming mystery lurks beneath the surface. As if that’s not enough, rumors begin to swirl about an elite group of female soldiers living and working at a nearby Cold War-era climate research station. However, no one seems to know why they’re there or who could be leading them.
Camp Zero is exhilarating and a masterful exploration of who and what will survive in a warming world, and how falling in love and building community can be the most daring acts of all.
