Teen speculative fiction

In the future, in a world destroyed by the harsh sun, there are those who live in luxury inside the walled Enclave and those, like sixteen-year-old Gaia Stone, who live outside—struggling to survive. Each month the people outside the wall must deliver a quota of babies to the Enclave, to be raised by parents within and brainwashed to forget about the world outside

That’s the way it’s always been, and the way Gaia thinks it should be … until her parents are arrested on suspicion of hiding a code; a code revealing the secrets of the ‘advanced’ babies. Realising she is her parents’ only hope for survival, Gaia ventures inside the wall to rescue them. But she soon discovers that the Enclave is not as perfect as it appears; the gene pool has become too small and genetic irregularities are developing—something the brutal government wants to stope. At any cost. Can Gaia break the code and discover the truth, before it’s too late?

Abbey has spent her summer trying to forget Caspian: the boy she fell in love with, the boy who she knows must not exist, cannot exist, because he is dead… But summer is almost over, and now Abbey has to return to Sleepy Hollow and face the ghosts of her past.

At first she throws herself into schoolwork, perfume-making and her emerging friendship with cute and funny—and very much alive—Ben, who she hopes might help her get over Caspian once and for all. But when Caspian reappears in her life, Abbey realises that moving on might not be an option: for Caspian is a Shade and Abbey is his destiny. And destiny is something you can’t run from, no matter how hard you try…
