The Fog Diver by Joel Ross
This is a fun to read, middle grade, dystopian science fiction/fantasy novel. In this imaginary future, a fog made of nanobots that only bothers and can kill, humans, has taken over the world, forcing people to live on mountaintops and floating cities tethered to the earth. Thirteen year old Chess has a fog-eye, caused by the bad guy, Lord Kodoc, in a strange genetic experiment. Chess and his friends are hiding from Kodoc, with Chess as their fog diver, scavanging from the fog-covered earth. Now, Kodoc has learned of his existence, and Chess and his friends must escape the slums and to help find a cure for Mrs. E's fogsickeness. Action and adventure abound in this award winning middle grade story.
