March's Reading Power Book Club: The Enemy
What's it all about? Well, have a gander over the blurb for a taster.
When the sickness came, every parent, police officer, politician - every adult fell ill. The lucky ones died. The others are crazed, confused and hungry.
Only children under fourteen remain, and they're fighting to survive.
Now there are rumours of a safe place to hide. And so a gang of children begin their quest across London, where all through the city - down alleyways, in deserted houses, underground - the grown-ups lie in wait.
But can they make it there - alive?
It seems to have hit the spot with critics, as the Guardian called it "Clever... fast-paced...inventive" while the Daily Mirror praised Higson for getting "the balance of blood and gore just right".
Are they right to say that? Why not share your thoughts on the book once you have a read of it? And if you're strapped for cash, just pop over to your local library, they are bound to have it.
Once you've read the book, come back to this well-written article and share your views on the book. And if you've read the book already, go ahead and start the conversation!
