Special by Georgia Blain

SpecialGeorgia Blain’s second young adult novel is set in the future, but one that is recognisable.

Fern is the ‘special’ child, chosen to be educated amongst the wealthy, despite her humble background. Joining three other ‘Lotto girls’ she is raised at elite Halston, away from her family and all she knew.

But then she ends up in a compound having to fend for herself and is being hunted for the genetic design that she sought to escape.

In this environment she reflects back on her upbringing in the establishment that sought to control her, and still haunts her everyday life.

Frighteningly real, this book for teenagers and adults alike will leave you thinking about the world we live in and what it will become.
