Description - Born Scared by Kevin Brooks
The much anticipated follow-up title from the multi-award winning author of The Bunker Diary, winner of the 2014 Carnegie Medal. Elliot is terrified of almost everything. From the moment he was born twelve years ago, his life has been governed by his acute and very real fears. He lives in an isolated village in the Yorkshire Dales, and the only things that keep his terrors in check are the pills hat he takes every day, and his mother, the one person he loves and trusts. It's Christmas Eve, there's a snowstorm and Elliot's medication is almost gone. The phone lines are down. His mother nips out to collect his prescription. It's just 400 metres down the road - but she doesn't come back. Then the power goes off. Does Elliot stay and wait, or does he try to find her? It's only 400 metres. It might as well be 400 miles...
