The Lovereading4Kids comment
Brilliantly told in contrasting teenage voices, this is a powerful story set in a dystopian future in which much of what we know about is destroyed in ‘the attack’. Trespassing in a ruined house, a group of teenagers come across a secret hidden in the house centuries before. And very dark and dangerous secret it is too. Can they manage to control their discovery and just what will happen if they don’t? Gripping from its dramatic and chilling opening, this is a story of friendships, secrets, deep fears and great hopes set in a dark world.
Wreckers by Julie Hearn
The lid gave, eventually, with surprisingly little noise. Nothing splintered. Nothing broke. No hinges flew, or even creaked, and for a second or two nothing happened at all. Then came the first scream. It blew out a candle, that scream ...'Shut the lid! For the love of God ...SHUT THE LID!' And so the box was slammed shut, hidden away, and forgotten about. But what lay within was only dormant ...waiting for the time when it would be released, and let loose upon the world. And that time was about to come ...That time is now. This fantastic new novel from acclaimed, Carnegie Medal shortlisted writer, Julie Hearn, is truly unique and tells of friendship, secrets, love, hate and hope.
'..this novel is bound to keep readers hooked, provoke debate and enhance Hearn's reputation as a talented storyteller.' Linda Buckley-Archer in The Guardian
