The Mercy Journals

Author/Illustrator/Editor: Claudia Casper

In the wake of a third world war, a soldier named Mercy travels into the wilderness to find his missing family.

This unsettling novel is set thirty years in the future, in the wake of a third world war. One of the survivors, a former soldier nicknamed Mercy, suffers from PTSD and is haunted by guilt and lingering memories of his family. When his long-lost brother Leo arrives with news that Mercy’s children have been spotted, the two brothers travel into the wilderness to look for them, only to find that the line between truth and lies has been trespassed, challenging Mercy’s own moral code. “A remarkably incisive and sensitive variation on the dystopian theme.” ―Booklist
