Mad Max for the eco-generation it's a superalative dystopian thriller about courage and freedom, with a love story at its heart. There are 'haves' and 'have nots' - those who can afford oxygen to live and those that can't. But there's a secret resistance which 16 year old Alina is part of and she's determined to fight back the terrifying regime that runs life inside the world of the 'haves' in what's known as the Pod. But to survive she needs the help of a band of rebels who are protecting an enclave of trees that are keeping them alive...
Breathe by Sarah Crossan
Years after the Switch, life inside the Pod has moved on. A poor Auxiliary class cannot afford the oxygen tax which supplies extra air for running, dancing and sports. The rich Premiums, by contrast, are healthy and strong. Anyone who opposes the regime is labelled a terrorist and ejected from the Pod to die.
Praise for The Weight of Water:
Poignant, powerful, just perfect Cathy Cassidy
