Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld

Join our middle school academic class as they read Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan, starting January 10, 2018. Students will spend six weeks reading, discussing, and exploring the steampunk sub-genre of science fiction, mixed with historical elements of WWI.

Book description from Amazon:  It is the cusp of World War I. The Austro-Hungarians and Germans have their Clankers, steam-driven iron machines loaded with guns and ammunition. The British Darwinists employ genetically fabricated animals as their weaponry. Their Leviathan is a whale airship, and the most masterful beast in the British fleet.

Aleksandar Ferdinand, a Clanker, and Deryn Sharp, a Darwinist, are on opposite sides of the war. But their paths cross in the most unexpected way, taking them both aboard the Leviathan on a fantastical, around-the-world adventure….One that will change both their lives forever.
