Summary "All this happened many years ago, before the streets were air-conditioned. So begins bestselling author Goodmans work of speculative fiction, set in the near future on a volcanic island. The Greenspoons, Will and Pamela, with their young daughter Honor, have been assigned to a shabby house near the shore where they are monitored by the Neighborhood Watch. No books are allowed in the home, no music, scant possessions for before have arrived for them. The world Honor now grows up in is safe and sometimes beautiful, but things are not always what they seem. The Other Side of the Island is a post-apocalyptic tale told from the perspective of a girl whose parents have been abducted by Earth Mother, the corporation that controls the world and its new weather."--Provided by publisher
