Summary

The call it the plague.

A generation of children born with extreme genetic mutations.

They call it a home.

But it's a place of neglect and forced labour.

They call him a freak.

But Dog is just a boy who wants to be treated as normal.

They call them dangerous.

They might be right.

The story of a lost generation, and a boy who just wants to be one of us.

Critic reviews

"The Girl with All The Gifts meets To Kill a Mockingbird." (Claire North, author of The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August)

"This is not a kind book, or a gentle book, or a book that pulls its punches. But it's a powerful book and it will change you." (Seanan McGuire) 

"It's quite rare to find a story with this much heartbreaking impact...this is skilful, powerful stuff." (SciFiNow)
