Liberty's Daughter

A novel by

Beck Garrison lives on a seastead — an archipelago of constructed platforms and old cruise ships, assembled by libertarian separatists a generation ago. She's grown up comfortable and sheltered, but starts doing odd jobs for pocket money.

To her surprise, she finds that she's the only detective that a debt slave can afford to hire to track down the woman's missing sister. When she tackles this investigation, she learns things about life on the other side of the waterline — not to mention about herself and her father — that she did not expect. And that some people will stop at nothing to keep her from talking about . . .

Praise for this book

"Be astonished. I love Kritizer's work, and I always will." - Kelly Barnhill

"Everything Naomi Kritzer writes is amazing. Smash that pre-order button." - Elizabeth Bear

"I have been waiting most of a literal decade for this." - John Chu

"Kritzer's got a sharp knife and she slips it in so smoothly that you barely notice that you're bleeding. The best sf uses the future to make a point about the present, and Kritzer's got today's enshittified, profit-worshipping, sociopathic present's number." - Cory Doctorow

"I loved Liberty's Daughter. This book offers a different kind of dystopia and a different kind of rebellion against it: a libertarian seastead that has managed to survive forty years while walking smack into all the expected bears, and a kid fighting those bears with all the strength of freedom and agency that the place has accidentally given her ... disturbing, nuanced, and wind-tossed future." - Ruthanna Emrys

"Liberty's Daughter is a fast-paced, forthright, funny voyage through libertarian seasteads and teenage heroism. Naomi Kritzer always brings both heart and brains to her tales, and Liberty's Daughter is no exception." - Marissa Lingen
