Castoff World by Kay Kenyon
The refuse is being transformed my nano-bots who Child calls NORA. They are adrift in the North Pacific gyre where Grandpa tells her about her past a prepares her to survive on her own.
Grandpa is dying.
This story is quite touching and sad but is forever laced with optimism for the future. A future imagined by Child.
I enjoyed this story on my patio on a sunny afternoon while enjoying a couple beers. I was very happy to look up from the story to see the green of my back yard.
