Might be the most real friend she's ever had in the world The trouble is he's got the promise of certain death looming over him unless Mandy can do something to help Traveling through shocking VHS found footage and nostalgic memories of the past her confusing life gets out of control and she begins to uestion society in general and whether or not the rapid and thoughtless conversion of everything to digital technology is dooming the world Smog City takes Cape Breton's extensive industrial past and th century nostalgia to a whole different level one where pollution has emotion and two friends try their best to survive in a world where everything including life is disposable This is an intriguing book and I was transported very uickly to the tar ponds site – I love the smell of tar assuming the STP smells the same as I know The story line is uniue; the personification of a hazardous waste site befriending a human being This is a fast paced book snappy dialogue and believable characters I lamented along with Mandy at the demise of proper photography and the analogue world now all but buried under the ubiuitous and homogenising ‘digital age’For me a good book is one where life is an irritating interruption to my reading of it This was such a book and I enjoyed reading it very much The book itself I read borrowed a copy from a friend was wonderfully uirky – I always knew what page I was on thanks to the big page numbers and if I read correctly the excellent art work was done in MS Paint; no mean featThis book is well worth reading and I recommend it
