9780141319100: Being

Sixteen-year-old Robert lies anaesthetized. A routine operation has just gone wrong.

'What the hell is that?'

'That, Mr Ryan, is the inside of this boy.'

'Christ . . . It looks like some kind of plastic.'

As Robert slowly wakes, he can hear, he can feel, but he can't scream. The operation isn't over. But life, as Robert knows it, is.

Robert goes on the run, terrified and desperate for answers. But what if the answers are too terrifying to face?

This is Kevin Brooks at his very best powerful, intense, page-turning reading for teenage readers and beyond.

Review:

A subtle, spooky, headlong dash through the dark edges of romantic science fiction, a genre Kevin Brooks – with his usual delight in flouting convention – appears to have invented (Meg Rosoff, author of How I Live Now)

Violently enjoyable ( The Times)

Original in its premise and captivating in its delivery. A gripping read ( Big Issue)

Sharp and precise . . . a meditation on the nature of humanity ( Sunday Times)

An exciting on-the-run thriller . . . you'll be gripped ( Flipside)
