The Lord of Opium - Nancy Farmer

Years after the publication of Nancy Farmer’s award-winning modern classic, The House of the Scorpion, comes The Lord of Opium (Atheneum, $17.99), a frenetic and powerful sequel. A clone of the dictator El Patron, Matt finds himself suddenly responsible for the prosperous Land of Opium. As Opium thrives, surrounding nations starve, and El Patron’s terrifyingly inhumane methods have left their mark. Matt struggles to make a difference, but his every attempt seems thwarted, both by his very real and current enemies and by his own nature. Can a clone ever truly be more than a copy of its original? Farmer’s highly anticipated sequel more than delivers, providing another glimpse into this highly realized world. Ages 15 and up. CEB
