Resounding with rage and indignation, Heathfield’s latest novel is an urgent assault on the dangerous consequences of falling for populist propaganda. Set in a present day dystopia where the ultra-conservative Traditionals hold sway, I am not a Number explores themes of conformity, dictatorship and protest in a vital yet intelligent fashion.
The Traditionals have been voted to lead the country, winning people over with talks of healing a broken society, of stronger families and safer streets. They promised a happier future for everyone. They didn't promise this.
When Ruby is swept up with protesters from the opposition, her life is changed forever. Locked in a prison camp far from home and with her belongings taken from her, she's now known by the number 276. With horror escalating in the camp, Ruby knows that she has to get her family out - and let the world know what's happening.
Set in the present day, I Am Not A Number is a powerful and timely book for both young adults and adults alike.
