The Lovereading4Kids comment
An incredibly topical thriller that captures the mood of the moment in terms of the scientific advances that are becoming increasingly possible and yet continue to be highly controversial. Picture if you can an island complete with families, all of whom believe they are the only survivors of a holocaust.
In fact, as time goes on two teenagers from very different backgrounds on the island discover a diary written 15 years before that begins to uncover the real truth of the island and what may be beyond. A truth too awful to comprehend until you read it. The teenagers will draw you in to a world and lead you to the terrifying truth that the islanders are being used for something that people elsewhere may need one day. Frightening but Lifegame is utterly compelling. If you've never read the author's debut novel Unique then click here.
Lifegame by Alison Allen-Gray
Fella and Grebe have grown up on an island, believing that the world beyond its shores is toxic and that the islanders are the lucky survivors of a cataclysmic disaster. And then Fella, an orphan, discovers a diary, hidden fifteen years ago by his mother - a woman who seemingly came from the Outside, from a world not run by the Officiate. This revelation seems incredible, but it gives the two friends hope that they can escape the brutality of their lives. Yet when, after a gripping chase, they manage to get off the island, what they discover is a shock. Not only is the Outside alien and frightening, it forces them to understand the appalling truth about where they have come from, and why they were there. An up-to-the-minute thriller about what makes us who we are.
'an easy, readable style.. raises stimulating questions, and offers a plot that keeps you guessing throughout.' Financial Times
