Mr B’s Christmas Catalogue Review 2018
In a frighteningly imaginable future England, borders are in place, free movement is prohibited and the population is tracked by an all-seeing, all-controlling government, through chips implanted at birth. Orphaned Jake in an outwalker: a rebel who has escaped the tracking chip and is now on the run (along with his adorable dog, Jet!) hoping to escape to the safety of Scotland. This dystopian adventure is a nail-biting survival story about friendship against the odds in a post-Brexit future.
The border’s closed, Jake said. No one can get into Scotland, just like no one can cross the Channel . . .This is England and it’s no longer a free country. The Government can track anyone, anywhere, from a chip implanted at birth. But Jake has escaped from his Academy orphanage, and he’s got to get to Scotland with his dog, Jet. When the Outwalkers gang grabs him, they go off-grid while the Government hunts for them. The closer they get to Scotland, the more dangerous it is. Because now, it’s not only their own lives that are at stake . . .
