From two-time Carnegie Medal winner Patrick Ness comes an enthralling and provocative new novel chronicling the life – or perhaps afterlife – of a teen trapped in a crumbling, abandoned world.

A boy called Seth drowns, desperate and alone in his final moments, losing his life as the pounding sea claims him. But then he wakes. He is naked, thirsty, starving. But alive. How is that possible? He remembers dying, his bones breaking, his skull dashed upon the rocks. So how is he is here? And where is this place? It looks like the suburban English town where he lived as a child, before an unthinkable tragedy happened and his family moved to America. But the neighbourhood around his old house is overgrown, covered in dust and completely abandoned. What's going on? And why is it that whenever he closes his eyes, he falls prey to vivid, agonizing memories that seem more real than the world around him? Seth begins a search for answers, hoping that he might not be alone, that this might not be the hell he fears it to be, that there might be more than just this...

Review:

Ness, who won the Carnegie Medal two years running, has a talent for combining philosophical profundity and punchy prose. His books contain crackling dialogue, suspenseful action, twisty plots and big ideas. This novel toys with what we believe to be real, as teenage Seth drowns in the first chapter, only to wake up somewhere more complicated than an afterlife. His experience changes his attitude to the life he knew in suburban England and in small-town America, which is gradually revealed in flashbacks. With chapter endings so surprising you learn to hide the text rather than risk peeking ahead and spoiling the build-up, this is a story of friendship, danger, gay romance, child abduction, technology, guilt and hope. --The Sunday Times

Ness deals sensitively with themes of love and race in this post-apocalyptic tale --Family Traveller

Heart-breaking, emotional and dark. It's a story about love, forgiveness, friendship, hope and the unbelievable. It's a book that you'll invest time in and that will have your attention long after the last page is read trust me. --Luna's Little Library Book of the Month
