A powerful psychological thriller told from the point of view of a teenage suicide bomber. Full of suspense, this is a chilling and thought-provoking portrait of a girl raised to be a killer. Valley is wearing the bomb vest and the clock is ticking.Reminiscent of V for Vendetta and Survivor by Chuck Palahnick, this white-knuckle psychological thriller by Blythe Woolston is a "provocative insight into the mindset of those who see modern government as an unnecessary evil" (Publishers Weekly starred review). A must-read for fans of conspiracy theory dramas and thought-provoking speculative fiction. In a remote part of the US, the paranoid survivalist fringe has begun its war. And Valley is a key weapon. Ever since her mother died suddenly while picking beans in their garden - with the pock-a-pock of a helicopter overhead - Valley has known she must stay hidden from Those People, who would kill her without a second thought. But now, with her father unexpectedly gone and no home to go back to, a teenage Valley and her big brother, Bo, must bring their message to the outside world. Alternating between past and present vignettes in prose as tightly wound as the springs of a clock, readers will be gripped right to the final, explosive end.
