The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize 2009
This will intrigue and fascinate you from the start. Set in a futuristic utopian society Anax is taking an exam which will decide if she can enter the elite ‘Academy’ and her subject is Adam Forde, her long dead hero. Although set in a futuristic world, eternal philosophical questions arise in the course of the exam making Anax question herself and possibly all she has believed to be the truth about her hero. This is a real page turner and if you don’t read it in one sitting we would be very surprised!

Genesis by Bernard Beckett
A fourteen-year-old Anax thinks she knows her history. She'd better. She's sat facing three Examiners and her grueling five-hour examination has just begun. If she passes, she'll be admitted into The Academy - the elite institution that runs her utopian society.
'Highly original, this remarkable thriller fuses intricate ideas with real emotion and suspense. It gripped me like a vice.'
'a very different young adult novel ... that will make smart teenagers feel very respected'
