Cleo Porter and the Body Electric

Raincoast Books

Jake Burt's Cleo Porter and the Body Electric is a futuristic middle-grade novel about a girl who lives in a hermetically sealed housing development.

In a future forever changed by a pandemic, a girl survives in total isolation.

A woman is dying. Cleo Porter has her medicine. And no way to deliver it.

Like everyone else, twelve-year-old Cleo and her parents are sealed in an apartment without windows or doors. They never leave. They never get visitors. Their food is dropped off by drones. So theyre safe. Safe from the disease that nearly wiped humans from the earth. Safe from everything. The trade-off?

Theyre alone. Thus, when they receive a package clearly meant for someone else - a package containing a substance critical for a strangers survival - Cleo is stuck. As a surgeon-in-training, she knows the clock is ticking. But people dont leave their units.

Not ever. Until now.
