Overview

The long, bitter winters are getting worse, and a state of emergency has been declared across Europe. In Poland, where fifteen-year-old Magda lives, there are frequent power cuts and fuel shortages. After the death of her grandmother and the evacuation of her village, Magda joins forces with the arrogant, handsome Ivan and smuggles her way on to a truck bound for London, where she hopes to find her mother. But London, when they reach it, is a nightmarish and far-from-welcoming world. Riots are commonplace, and the growing chaos is exploited by criminals and terrorists alike. Magda's mother is nowhere be found, and as the lost girl struggles to come to terms with her changing situation, she is befriended by a ragtag group of travellers planning a new home and future. Together they will need all the cunning they possess to survive in the frozen wilderness of Britain, which has become just as lawless as the city.

Meet the Author

Sophie Crockett was brought up on a yacht as her parents circumnavigated the globe. She now divides her time between Portobello Road, London, and the beech forests of the Montagne Noire of Southern France. Sophie speaks French and Russian, and her experiences in far-flung places inform much of her writing. She is married to the artist Timothy Shepard and has two children. ONE CROW ALONE is her second novel. The first, AFTER THE SNOW, was shortlisted for the Branford Boase first novel award.

'Crockett has created a voice that gets inside you . . . a truly transcendent coming-of-age novel.' – The New York Times Editor's Pick

'Harrowing but hopeful . . . ' – Observer
