Title: The Roar

Author: Emma Clayton

KDL Description:


In an overpopulated world where all signs of nature have been obliterated and a wall has been erected to keep out plague-ridden animals, twelve-year-old Mika refuses to believe that his twin sister was killed after being abducted and continues to search for her in spite of the dangers he faces in doing so.

Amazon Description:

A futuristic eco-thriller about Ellie, a kidnapped child warrior determined to free herself—and free the planet. Listen: Can you hear THE ROAR? Answer the call of the wild!

Mika and Ellie live in a future behind a wall: Solid concrete topped with high-voltage razor wire and guarded by a battalion of Ghengis Borgs, it was built to keep out the animals, because animals carry the plague. At least that’s what Ellie, who was kidnapped as a child, has always been taught. But when she comes to suspect the truth behind her captivity, she’s ready to risk exposure to the elements and answer the call of the wild. Listen. Can you hear it? She’s strapping on her headset, jumpstarting her Pod Fighter, and—with her capuchin monkey at her back—she’s breaking out!
