Review quote

'A fine book, highly recommended' - School Library Journal; 'Philbrick has created some memorable characters in this fast-paced adventure, which will leave readers musing over humanity's future' - Booklist; 'Danger, despair and drama permeate this adventure story which presents its hero with a major moral dilemma' - Booktrust Children's Books; 'Vivid storytelling makes this book utterly absorbing. Set in the future following a cataclysmic event which had devastated the world, readers are prompted to think and consider what is important; not of their day-to-day problems but of the wider meaning of life, of their place in the world and what is happening to our planet Earth...Each character adds a further layer involvement and draws the reader further into the tale. Challenging, but well worth the effort' - Carouselshow more
