Description

Shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2018Nominated for the CILIP Carnegie Medal 2018Longlisted for the Branford Boase Award 2018In three years I will be able to vote and I will still have less power than I did at the moment that I saw that email, which was such a tiny thing but look what happened. Fifteen-year-old Alena never really knew her political activist mother, who died when she was a baby.

She has grown up with her older half-brother Danny and his boyfriend Nick in the east end of London.

Now the area is threatened by a bomber who has been leaving explosive devices in supermarkets.

It is only a matter of time before a bomb goes off. Against this increasingly fearful backdrop, Alena seeks to discover more about her past, while Danny takes a job working for a controversial politician.

As her family life implodes, and the threat to Londoners mounts, Alena starts getting into trouble.

Then she does something truly rebellious. A searing, heartbreaking coming-of-age tale for fans of Lisa Williamson, Jenny Downham and Sarah Crossan.
