Four London Mums have the chance to win signed copies of all three books in the award-winning trilogy The Territory by Sarah Govett – including the nail-biting finale Truth which is out on 29 March 2018 for their teenagers. It’s trendy and they will love you for these exclusive gifts signed by the writer.
The story starts in the year 2059. Unchecked global warming means half of Britain is under water. Everyone has to sit an exam when they hit 15. Pass and you get to stay in The Territory, fail and you’re shipped off to the malaria-ridden Wetlands for a life of misery if not certain death. Rich families can pay for a procedure for their kids allowing them to upload information from a computer directly into their brains through a Node in the back of their necks, making passing virtually guaranteed.
We follow Noa, a ‘Norm’ and her best friends as their lives are beset by power-tripping teachers, vindictive ‘Childes’, and a police force that clubs down Opposition members in the street. Noa needs to focus. Focus as her life depends on it. But this is easier said than done when a mysterious boy with mismatched eyes shows up at her school…
Hailed by The Guardian children’s booksite as ‘the 1984 of our time’, The Territory is a recommended BookTrust read and the winner of this year’s Trinity Schools Book Award. It’s a perfect series for 11-14 year olds, in which Govett explores thought-provoking topics like global warming, educational inequality and fake news.
As BookTrust said of the sequel, Escape: ‘Govett’s page-turning style underpins her philosophical questions about education, utopias and what we value in communities – an excellent and insightful read’.
For your chance to win one of these exclusive book bundles, follow London Mums on Instagram and write the name of your favourite children’s author of all time in the competition form below this post. Deadline to enter is midnight on 20 May 2018.
