About the Author:

L. J. Adlington is a writer, actress and costume historian. She lives in the north of England with a cat the size of a small armchair. She loves climbing volcanoes, watching crime dramas and reading fairy-tales. She is very good at eating chocolate. Her novels for teenagers weave together past, present, future and fantasy. Her latest novel Night Witches is set on a war-torn world, with a darkly complex and powerful heroine.

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.'

Book Description Hachette Children s Group, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. UK ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. It is 10 years after the events in The Diary of Pelly D. A new life in The New Frontier overseas beckons Kat and Tanka, far from the terrible war in the cities, that took their parents. In a beautiful new home, Cherry Heaven, where people are building a young, liberal society, without focus on the genetic categorization and discrimination that led to the war. But all too soon Kat and Tanka find that Cherry Heaven carries haunting marks of the past. They cannot run from them, and must finally and turn and face them. Again, L. J Adlington weaves her narrative expertly from two voices, Kat, teenage, light, modern and knowing, the other a disturbed, fragmented narrative from another girl which peals away the surface of the New Frontier to expose a different and more disturbing truth. Exploring issues of postwar guilt and redemption, tension and reconciliation, framed in a fast-moving mystery, this has the same engrossing readability and accessibility as Pelly D.
