The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the Carnegie Prize 2007. Yuri knows no freedom of thought. In his country, everything must be kept hidden – even from the neighbours. When Yuri makes one loose comment, he finds his life turned upside down as he is sent on a nightmare journey to the frozen north. Will he survive? Yuri’s story is harrowing, chilling and absolutely gripping.
The Road Of Bones by Anne Fine
Before I was even seven, I swear I could spell ‘The Glorious Revolution’… ‘Glorious Lie, more like,’ is what Yuri’s grandmother calls it. Everyone believes what they’re told and everyone knows who to cheer for, now that the Czar has gone. But people still vanish sometimes.No one sees anything, or hears anything. And no one ever comes back. Yuri knows this. But he never dreams that he too could be considered an ‘enemy of the state’ simply for letting drop a few careless words. Now he’s taking his first steps on a road to despair, to a virtual death-sentence - a nightmare journey up north to a camp amidst the frozen wastes. What, or who, can he possibly believe in now? Can he even survive? And is escape possible...?
