Image of London Eye (Toxic City)

Lebbon has an artful way with words. He pens descriptions and moments that one must pause to consider and absorb. The style works well with this dystopia, as readers really come to inhabit Lebbon’s destroyed, scary world. A great read.

London, Toxic City, has been cut off from the rest of the world after a devastating terrorist attack. Yet Jack and his crew believe there’s more to the story. When a mysterious old woman with healing powers shows up and offers to escort the teens into Toxic City, they begin a harrowing journey. Jack, his kind-of girlfriend Lucy-Anne, his young sister Emily, the wild but loyal Sparky and believer Jenna will never be the same. Is it worth the risk? If Jack’s mother is still alive, you bet it is. (PYR, Oct., 280 pp., $16.95, ISBN: 9781616146801, HC, 14 & Up)
