NOT EVERY GIFT IS A BLESSING

Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant Parks keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don’t like her. She jokes that she won’t bite. But they don’t laugh.

Melanie is a very special girl.

Emotionally charged and gripping from beginning to end, THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS is the most powerful and affecting thriller you will read this year.

‘If you only read one novel this year, make sure it’s this one’ Martina Cole

‘As fresh as it is terrifying’ Joss Whedon

‘A great read that takes hold of you and doesnt let go’ – John Ajvide Lindqvist, author of LET THE RIGHT ONE IN

*Look out THE BOOK OF KOLI – the start of a breathtakingly original new trilogy from M. R. Carey*
