9780060766177: The Diary of Pelly D

This is the diary of Pelly D. It,s totally secret, so if you are reading it I hate you already.

The notebook is wrapped in faded brown paper, sealed in a battered water can. Toni V, who works on the City Five demolition crew, unearths it as he's drilling through concrete. He shouldn't smuggle it back to his room, and he definitely shouldn't read it. But he does. At first, Toni V thinks Pelly D is rich, stupid, and petty. Yet he can't help starting to care for her, especially as she begins to write about the gene tagging, the bombs, and the fighting. Her words slowly reveal the chilling state of her world. What happened to Pelly D? Toni V needs to know. He has only one clue:

Dig—dig everywhere.

Review:

The Diary of Pelly D catches you by the throat and it doesn't let you go even when you have read the last paragraph. The real storyline of Adlington's clever novel is not thrown at you from the start - you have to peel away the skin like that of an orange to see what is inside. This is a brilliant example of storytelling at its most seductive ... This is a fastpaced, utterly absorbing novel that is hard to put down once you have begun reading. Sunday Morning Post, John Millen L J Adlington's spare and concise voice brings Pelly D vividly to life for both Toni V and the reader, The Diary of Pelly D will intrigue and grip from the first diary entry to the open-ended and chilling conclusion. Pocklington Post Written in the breathless, racy style of a young teenager, Pelly's diaries just keep you reading ...It gives an old theme a fresh twist ... York Evening Press The Diary of Pelly D is a clever, unusual story that readers looking for something different will find captivating. The book reveals its secrets slowly with maximum impact. South China Morning Post Adlington has crafted an original and disturbing dystopian fantasy told in a smart and sympathetic teen voice. Booklist This book is one thing: amazing. Voya 'In this powerful debut novel, Adlington deftly sketches in the background to Pelly D's increasingly totalitarian world, whilst allowing her sparky heroine centre stage.' Books for Keeps September 05 'An impacting page turner that will leave you gasping for H2O.' writeaway.org.uk This provocative addition to the growing body of dystopian literature for teens is a disturbing book that shouldn't be missed. Starred Reviews, Books for Youth This riveting dystopia will stun readers with its resemblance to the Jewish Holocaust. School Library Journal Both poignant and chilling - an excellent companion to historical Holocaust literature, Kliatt A convincingly told and gripping story. TES A clever, unusual story that readers looking for something different will find captivating. Sunday Young Post
