The House of the Scorpion Author:Nancy Farmer Nancy Farmer, three-time Newbery Honor author does it again with "The House of the Scorpion." Destined to be a classic, this book weaves an unforgettable tale. Around every turn this vivid, futuristic adventure is a new heart-stopping surprise.
This book deals with the moral ethics of cloning in a futuristic world where drug lords have taken over the boarder of Mexico and the United States. Overall I found the book to be a bit lacking, given its numerous awards I'd expect better intergration of hispanic culture and a less predictable plot. However it was recommended me by a vary dear friend whose opinion on books I respect so clearly I'm in the minority in my opinion.
