Fallen Children

    By

    One cover. 360 different colours. Which one will you get? 'A powerful and disturbing new take on an original classic' Tim Bowler, author of Carnegie Medal-winner River Boy 'I loved this book . . . Pacy, gripping, intriguing [and] poignant' Alice Oseman, author of Solitaire and Radio Silence Young people on the Midwich Estate don't have much hope for their futures. Keisha has lived there her whole life, and has been working hard to escape it; others have just accepted their lot. But change is coming . . . One night, everyone inside Midwich Tower falls mysteriously unconscious in one inexplicable 'Nightout'. No one can explain what happened during those lost hours, but soon afterwards Keisha and three other girls find they're pregnant - and the babies are growing at an alarming rate. As the news spreads around the tower, its residents turns against them and the situation spirals toward violence. Keisha's life unravels as she realises that the pregnancy may not have just ruined her hopes for the future: she might be mother to the end of the world. The Fallen Children is a story of violation, of judgment and of young people who must fight to defy what is expected of them. The Fallen Children has one cover design but 360 different colourways. Each one is numbered from 1 to 360 on the spine. The colour you receive will be completely random. 'THE FALLEN CHILDREN is ATTACK THE BLOCK meets VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED and feels like the London I know. It's very cool' - Juno Dawson 'An ingenious twist on a classic. Surprisingly tender and moving, completely convincing and gripping' - Kiran Millwood Hargrave 'Read THE FALLEN CHILDREN if you'd like less middle-class kidlit, allegorical commentary on society and teens, and dead good books' - Non Pratt
