Product description

Mhairi owns two things: a gun and her identity papers. The world is a deadly place now, bristling with soldiers and border checkpoints. Her passport says she’s a Global Citizen. There are too many people on the planet. The Earth is too hot, and people are moving. Like her. Now Mhairi is pointing her gun at a ragged old man and a five-year-old boy. Think it’s a low point? Nope – it’s the new normal. She’ll do anything to survive. That’s why she’ll have to abandon the boy. Taking him won’t end well. She doesn’t need baggage. Plus, she’s nearly made it to Scotland. Home. Or is it? Is there such a thing anymore?

  • A brutal, searing vision of the future by the author of Feather Boy
  • Set in a world of climate change, overpopulation and mass migration
  • Incredibly vital – as beautifully written as it is brilliantly imagined
  • Nicky Singer’s other books include GemX, Island and Doll

“Raw and energetic, lyrical and beautiful, intense and passionate…. It’s an absolute tour de force.” Bookbag
