The Lovereading4Kids comment

Interest Age Teen Reading Age 8 Two young people are thrown out of the safety of ‘the Store’, the building where they’ve been holed up for the last nine years following an apocalyptic event that has – as far as they know – wiped out humanity in a massive, toxic ice storm. The silent world they discover is frightening and full of danger, their journey through it brilliantly described by Catherine Fisher in unfussy language that nonetheless captures its strangeness and beauty. It makes for compulsive reading. Published by Barrington Stoke and therefore accessible to dyslexic and reluctant readers, this is an excellent introduction to Catherine Fisher, one of our very best fantasy authors. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

At the World's End by Catherine Fisher

Caz has been living in the department store since the day the Blue Star came and killed everyone who breathed in its toxic snow. She can't do so much as look outside. But life in the store is getting dangerous and so Caz decides to take her chances in the world outside, with only Will for company. What will she find in the bleak landscape? And is there even anything to find? A compelling vision of a dystopian society.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 12+
