Patrick Ness - More Than This (2nd Hand Paperback)
From two-time Carnegie Medal winner Patrick Ness comes an enthralling and provocative new novel chronicling the life - or perhaps afterlife - of a teen trapped in a crumbling, abandoned world.
A boy called Seth drowns, desperate and alone in his final moments, losing his life as the pounding sea claims him.
But then he wakes. He is naked, thirsty, starving. But alive. How is that possible? He remembers dying, his bones breaking, his skull dashed upon the rocks. So how is he is here? And where is this place?
It looks like the suburban English town where he lived as a child, before an unthinkable tragedy happened and his family moved to America. But the neighbourhood around his old house is overgrown, covered in dust and completely abandoned. What's going on? And why is it that whenever he closes his eyes, he falls prey to vivid, agonizing memories that seem more real than the world around him?
Seth begins a search for answers, hoping that he might not be alone, that this might not be the hell he fears it to be, that there might be more than just this.

"Ness deals sensitively with themes of love and race in this post-apocalyptic tale." - Family Traveller.
"Heart-breaking, emotional and dark. It’s a story about love, forgiveness, friendship, hope and the unbelievable. It’s a book that you’ll invest time in and that will have your attention long after the last page is read - trust me," - Luna’s Little Library Book of the Month.
"Patrick Ness definitely knows how to keep readers intrigued and desperate to read the next chapter." - The Guardian Online.
"Ness's style of writing is beautiful, as it is in his other books, I could picture the story very well, and this makes his books very powerful." - The Guardian.
"Just Read It" - John Green.
