Blood Red Road
Winner of the Costa Children's Book Award 2011. "I ain't afeared
of nuthin." Saba's twin is golden. She is his living shadow. He is
strong and beautiful. She is scrawny and dark. Nothing will separate
them... Raised in isolated Silverlake, Saba is ignorant of
the harsh and violent world beyond her home. But when her twin is
snatched by black-robed riders, red rage fills her soul. How will
Saba find him in a wild, scorching and lawless land? Racing across
the cruel dustlands to find him, she can spare no one. Not even
the boy who saves her life. She must silence her heart to survive.
Blood will spill. Every step of Saba's journey sizzles with
danger in this futuristic thriller, which beats with a powerful,
red-blooded heart. "A shot of pure adrenalin. Exuberant, exciting
and charged with emotion... If a better book for teenagers is published
this year, I'll be surprised." The Times "Has an elemental
power, unfolding across achingly barren landscapes, full of blistering
hotwinds and swirling clouds of orange dust." New York Times

A few people, perhaps one in ten thousand, can still sleep, and they've all shared the same golden dream. After six days of absolute sleep deprivation, psychosis will set in. After four weeks, the body will die. In the interim, panic ensues and a bizarre new world arises in which those previously on the fringes of society take the lead. Paul, a writer, continues to sleep while his partner Tanya disintegrates before his eyes, and the new world swallows the old one whole.
