Arctic Zoo by Robert Muchamore
‘It isn’t easy to change the world but you’ve got to keep trying.’ Georgia gets straight As at school, has been placed first in twenty-six drone races and has a serious addiction to buying Japanese stationery.
She plans to follow her older sister Sophie and become a doctor, but her worldview is shattered when tragedy strikes. Julius lives in Ondo, a Nigerian state where half the population lives on less than a dollar a day. But he isn’t one of them. His uncle has been state governor for more than a decade and his mother is the power behind that throne. He finds refuge in a derelict zoo with best friend Duke, but as the two of them grow close, the world outside becomes more and more hostile.
Following two teenagers living very different lives, ARCTIC ZOO is an arresting thriller about protest, sexuality, mental heath and flawed leadership, from the bestselling author of CHERUB.
