Roxy by Neal Shusterman and Jarrod Shusterman

The Blurb On The Back:

Above our world is a toxic wonderland where the party has raged for centuries.

Humans know the partygoers simply as “narcotics”, “opioids”, “drugs”.  But here they are malevolent gods, toying with the fates of mortals.  Roxy and Addison have made a wager to see who can be lethal the quickest.

Isaac and Ivy Ramey are their targets.  Ivy is understimulated and over medicated.  Isaac is desperate to recover from a sports injury that jeopardises his chance of a scholarship.  This is the start of a race to the bottom that will determine life and death.  One Ramey will land on their feet.  The other will be lost to the Party.

The only question is … Which one?

ROXY was released in the United Kingdom on 11th November 2021.   Thanks to Walker Books for the review copy of this book.

Game Changer by Neal Shusterman

The Blurb On The Back:

A searing exploration of the world we live in – and the ones we don’t.

Ash is used to taking hits for his high school football team – but then those hits start pushing him through a succession of universes almost-but-not-really like his own.  As small shifts in reality become significant shits in Ash’s own identity, he starts to question the world he thought he knew, as well as the ones he finds himself catapulted into.

For better or worse, the one thing Ash knows is that he’s got to find a way to put everything back.

Dry by Neal Shusterman and Jarrod Shusterman

The Blurb On The Back:

Everyone’s going to remember where they were when the taps ran dry.

The drought – or the tap-out, as everyone calls it – has been going on for a while.  Life has become an endless list of don’ts: don’t water the lawn, don’t take long showers, don’t panic.  But now there’s no water left at all.

Suddenly, Alyssa’s quiet suburban street spirals into a warzone of desperation and violence.  When her parents go missing, she and her younger brother must team up with an unlikely group in search of water.  Each of them will need to make impossible choices to survive.
