Another excellent book by Helen Brain

Helen’s novel is a fast, exciting read full of the ecological concerns that are so often captured in post-apocalyptic fiction today.

Although written for young adults, as an adult I thoroughly enjoyed this book; reminded me of ‘The Hunger Games’ in style. Helen Brain’s writing is descriptive and pacy. I’m looking forward to giving copies to my grandchildren for Christmas.
