Fourteen-year-old Colm Bell and his 11-year-old sister Lydia wake to the smell of smoke and the sound of gunfire - raiders are attacking their home. They grab their backpacks - pre-packed for such an emergency - and head to the tunnel and the hills, following the escape route they have practised every day of their young lives. They don't look back. This is a futuristic novel set in Australia when the earth has been plundered and natural resources depleted. Society has broken down completely, and small groups of people live in suspicion, desperately hoarding their meagre supplies. This is a haunting, lyrical story - of children abandoned to a planet that no longer sustains life, their journey alone through incredible peril, and the realisation of the part they must play in this brave new world.
