The Other Side Of The Island

Imagine a future where climate change has led to a world which is a series of islands. A future which is run by a Corporation that make enclosures that can control weather. A future where it is forbidden to watch the ocean or feel the sand.


Allegra Goodman has created such a world in The Other Side of the Island.

Ten year old Honor and her parents recently arrived on Island 365, after having lived as fugitives. Her parents, however, are free - thinking and rebellious, and the reader soon discovers that her parents are treading a dangerous path and putting everyone's lives at risk by ignoring the rules of the Corporation.

Then her parents disappear....

Gripping reading.
