The Grasshopper's Child by Gwyneth Jones

The Grasshopper's Child is an old-fashioned futuristic thriller, set in the same Near Future Crisis England as the legendary Bold As Love series, about young people taking the law into their own hands, and the savagery that hides behind wealth and power: full of odd characters, atrocious secrets, lost illusions and true friends. And gardening tips.

Gwyneth Jones has an impressive track record in award winning science fiction and fantasy, and also writes for teenagers as Ann Halam (Siberia, Dr Franklin's Island, The Shadow On The Stairs)

"Combines the satisfying unmasking closure of a good Scooby-Doo episode, with Gwyneth Jones' fiery rage against the Establishment and its occult workings. But be prepared: like Heidi, you will want to go back and learn your history as well as explore this gorgeous secret garden of a book."
Sophie Mayer, forbookssake
