9780061431807: Cherry Heaven

Kat and Tanka J are starting over. The New Frontier is nothing like war-stricken City Five—no battle scars, no memories of their parents. It's a perfect society, where everyone lives in harmony. Or so they say.

There's me, the ghost in the glass, and there's everyone else on the warm side of the windows. If you're really quiet, you'll hear me creeping in the shadows.

Someone else is starting over, too, running on a path perilously close to Kat and Tanka. Can the two girls and their friends uncover the dark secrets of the New Frontier before the unthinkable happens?

The last birthday i ever had, years ago, was the one where I got shot instead of presents. i wasn't killed before and i won't get dead now. run, run as fast as i can, can't catch me 'cause i got a Plan! Don't anyone get in my way.

Review:

An exciting and convincing narrative which raises important questions about human rights and individual freedoms. School Librarian Powerful, thought-provoking material. Booktrust Children's Books 'a convincingly told and gripping story' TES Original and beguiling. Love Reading This multifaceted novel's chilling portrayal of gene wars, slavery and prejudice will haunt readers long after the book is finished. But it is also a skilfully crafted mystery, slowly mounting up evidence towards a heart-stopping climax. Voya This is an exciting and convincing narrative which raises important questions about human rights and individual freedoms. School Librarian Part SF, part mystery, this is a compelling tale of life on another planet where intolerance still elads to discrimination and violence. Kliatt In this complex, absorbing, and sometimes disquieting novel, Adlington creates a world that is distinctly different from our own, yet chillingly familiar. Starred Review, Books for Youth PRAISE FOR 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. This is a brilliant example of storytelling at its most seductive ... a fastpaced, utterly absorbing novel that is hard to put down ...' Sunday Morning Post, John Millen L J Adlington's spare and concise voice brings Pelly D vividly to life ... 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 ... 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.'
