The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for The Branford Boase Award 2013
A bone-freezingly brilliant and gripping novel introducing an astounding, prizeworthy new voice in YA fiction.
Macmillan Children's Books Fiction Editor Emma Young said: "Everyone here at Macmillan Children's Books felt that Willo's extraordinary and endlessly affecting voice transported this gripping adventure firmly into prize-winning territory. Naive, bright, immensely entertaining—he is a character to treasure and to remember.. The winter of 2009 was extremely hard. I asked myself: what would happen if winter never ended?"

After the Snow by S. D. Crockett
Set in the haunting and barren landscape of a new ice age, AFTER THE SNOW is the story of fifteen-year-old Willo, a 'straggler' kid who loses his family in the opening pages. Completely alone, he is immediately flung into an icy journey of survival, adventure, friendship and self-discovery - with only the dog spirit inside his head to guide him. Meanwhile, across Britain, outlawed followers of survivalist John Blovyn are planning an escape to the fabled Islands talked of in a revolutionary book ...Raw, compelling and unforgettable - this powerfully voiced novel is a YA classic in the making.
