The sky so heavy – Claire Zorn


Fin is a typical 16 year old school boy – fancies the girl next door and gets on with life at school.


But life takes an unbelievable turn when a conflict in a far away place changes his life for ever.

This is a very readable story, well told, with lots of action but also a great deal of sensitivity. Set in present day Australia, The sky so heavy is a look at what life would be like after a nuclear disaster. For Fin, his brother Max and school friend Lucy, things will never be the same. As a the nuclear winter takes hold of their ‘world’ the teenagers are forced to make decisions children should never have to make. Separated from their families and every sense of normality that they have ever known, the friends fight for survival

This book will be a popular choice for all readers.
