March – James Phelan – The last thirteen

I really enjoyed James Phelan’s – Survivor/Alone series and when this was recommended to me by a Year 7 student looked out for it.  The first of 13 books (sigh), the story focuses on a group of teenagers who have “true dreams” and the idea that they have harness control of their dream “visions” to stop the end of the world.  Three days on from reading it, I can’t remember the characters names but do think it would appeal to younger dystopian readers. It certainly has similar elements to Divergent and The Hunger Games without getting too bogged down in character and setting development. Enough action mixed in with the “what is happening to me?” type story. Recommend for Year 6-9. Have a look at the website
