"Exciting, through-provoking, and very hard to put down." - The New York Times Book Review

Mika lives in future London, behind The Wall. Solid concrete topped with high-voltage razor wire and guarded by a battalion of borgs, it was built to keep out the animals, because animals carry the plague.

Or so he's been told.

But ever since Ellie vanished a year ago, Mika has suspected that his world may be built on secrets-and lies. When a mysterious organization starts recruiting mutant kids to compete in violent virtual reality games, Mika takes the chance to search for his twin sister-and the truth.

Emma Clayton lives with her two children in Leamington Spa, England. The Whisper is the sequel to her debut novel, The Roar.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Roar"A hugely inventive and entertaining read which grabs the reader by the scruff of the neck from the first sentence. It flies along like a laser beam from a blaster and sustains the breakneck pace until the stunning climax. A fresh and exciting take on sci-fi." - Eoin Colfer "Telepathically connected twins battle a totalitarian regime... Exciting, though-provoking, and very hard to put down." - The New York Times Book Review"An exciting, suspenseful plot; this compulsive read should not be started at bedtime!" - Kirkus Reviews"An unusually gripping adventure... roars to a satisfying conclusion." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
