In 2012, The Emergency begins as terrorist bombs shatter cities and wreak havoc on normal life. Molly’s parents decide to send her and her brother, John, away to safety in the countryside. Molly is sent to Paradise Farm where she is cared for by Pernilla, who has always wanted a child and gives Molly everything she desires. Pernilla’s youthful enthusiasm is in stark contrast to Molly’s own frumpy mom. Molly is so caught up in her new life that she fails to take action when her friend, Fergal, tells her that John has been sent to live with an abusive farmer. It is not until her mother comes to visit that Molly realizes how important her family is, and how close she is to losing them.

"One of the best children's books I've ever read. It's raw, poetic, beautifully written and frighteningly real. The characters are alive, the use of language is stunning . . . dark, funny, bleak and ultimately hopeful." —Kevin Brooks, author, Kissing the Rain
