Waterstones Says

Effortlessly blending the gritty social realism of South London’s streets with brilliantly judged fantastical flourishes, Fadugba’s assured debut centres on a boy who can see glimpses of the future and a girl desperately seeking answers about her parents.

Shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize Older Readers Prize 2022

Exclusive Edition with sprayed edge

This epic thriller is soon to be a major Netflix movie starring Academy Award winner Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out, Black Panther, Judas and the Black Messiah).

'Believing is seeing, Esso . . .'

Esso is running out of time and into trouble. When he discovers he has the ability to see glimpses of the future, he becomes haunted by a vision of a bullet fired in an alleyway with devastating consequences.

A generation later, fifteen-year-old Rhia is desperately searching for answers - and a catastrophic moment from the past holds the key to understanding the parents she never got to meet.

Whether on the roads of South London or in the mysterious Upper World, Esso and Rhia's fates must collide.

And when they do, a race against the clock will become a race against time itself . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS

'[An] ambitious and highly addictive sci-fi thriller . . . The theory of relativity and time-travel science may drive the incredibly tense and compelling plot, but it is Fadugba's skill in weaving this around complex characters and a very powerful human story that makes The Upper World so special.' - Fiona Noble, The Bookseller
