I Am Margaret
A future dystopian thriller retelling the story of St. Margaret Clitherow. In Margo’s world, belief is a crime and the imperfect are “sorted” out of the general population when they are 18 to be “recycled” by the medical industry. Margo’s a Believer, so when she fails Sorting, she stays silent to protect her family. Bane, her unbelieving boyfriend, vows to rescue her. But when Margo has an unexpected chance to take on the system, the stakes get even higher. Now she has to escape, or face the worst punishment of all: Conscious Dismantlement.
IN MARGO’S WORLD, IF YOU DON’T PASS YOUR SORTING AT 18 YOU ARE RECYCLED.
“Look, if you don’t pass...” said Bane, “I’ll have to see what I can do about it. Because... well… I’ve been counting on marrying you for a very long time, now, and I’ve no intention of letting anything stop me!”
“Great style – very good characters and pace. Definitely a book worth reading, like The Hunger Games.” EOIN COLFER, author of Artemis Fowl
“An intelligent, well-written and enjoyable debut from a young writer with a bright future.”
