Sixteen-year-old Anna should not have been born. It is the year 2140 and people can live for ever. No one wants another mouth to feed, so she lives in a Surplus Hall, where unwanted children go to learn valuable lessons . . . at least she wasn't put down at birth.

One day, a new inmate arrives. Anna's life is thrown into chaos. He says things about her parents and the Outside that couldn't possibly be true . . . Or could they?

Thrilling, passionate and beautifully written, this dystopian novel is perfect for fans of The Hunger Games

Review quote

A haunting and suspenseful page-turner * Sunday Times Children's Book of the Week * 'Stunning, thought-provoking and a book that genuinely stays with you' * The Bookseller (Teenage Highlights) * A well-imagined and endlessly thought-provoking story * Telegraph * Poignant, thought-provoking ... Sharing the visionary quality of books such as 'The Handmaid's Tale' and 'How I Live Now', The Declaration is one of those rare books that changes the way you see the world. * Publishing News * Extremely chilling and, in places, quite harrowing * Books for Keeps *
