View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Part two of the literary sci-fi thriller follows a boy and a girl who are caught in a warring town where thoughts can be heard -- and secrets are never safe.
Reaching the end of their flight in THE KNIFE OF NEVER LETTING GO, Todd and Viola did not find healing and hope in Haven. They found instead their worst enemy, Mayor Prentiss, waiting to welcome them to New Prentisstown. There they are forced into separate lives: Todd to prison, and Viola to a house of healing where her wounds are treated. Soon Viola is swept into the ruthless activities of the Answer, while Todd faces impossible choices when forced to join the mayor's oppressive new regime. In alternating narratives the two struggle to reconcile their own dubious actions with their deepest beliefs. Torn by confusion and compromise, suspicion and betrayal, can their trust in each other possibly survive?

From AudioFile:

The narration of this stunning dystopian tale by Nick Podehl and Angela Dawe can only be described as outstanding. The second installment of Ness's trilogy finds 13-year-old New World colonist Todd Hewitt and his friend, settler Viola Eade, at the mercy of self-proclaimed and manipulative President Prentiss. Together they must fight for their freedom and the preservation of the New World, but to do this, they need to find each other and then attempt to contact Viola's fellow settlers. Nick Podehl gives a pitch-perfect portrayal of the confused and fierce Todd; Angela Dawe portrays the frightened but determined Viola. Together, their performances create a stellar listening experience. K.O. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
