The Girl With All the Gifts
Staff Pick: "Zombies, a killer fungus, and memorable characters are just some of the ingredients that make up this wonderfully original Sci-Fi/horror tale. More moving and emotionally-satisfying than what you often get from novels like these. Just a gem of a book. A modern classic" (Recommended by John)
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.
