The Lovereading4Kids comment

Shortlisted for the Branford Boase Award 2006.

Set in a far off future, Home is a powerful science fiction story which asks readers to take a fresh look at Earth and to consider what belonging somewhere means and why it matters. Sacks’ safe, secure life is turned upside down when her Station is attacked and the only person she has ever known is killed. She has to set off on a journey into the unknown – to earth where Humans don’t belong. There’s no-one to help her and every breath might be toxic and life-threatening. Sack’s story of survival in this richly created, dysptopian futuristic landscape is gripping. (10+)

Synopsis

Home by Nicola Davies

It's 2067 and the world has become virtually uninhabitable with all the pollution and toxins created by mankind. Ruling classes live holed up in the cities and workers live in Stations, safe from the outside world. But one day Station 27 is taken over by rebels. Nero, from the ruling classes, and Sacks, a worker, find themselves thrown together as they're captured by the rebels, their common enemy. As they begin to discover the terrifying truth about their world, the two children get separated and find themselves in great danger. Will they find each other before it is too late?
