The Bridge


Author – Jane Higgins

Age – 14+

In a world where the city is divided in two by many closed bridges, Nik has worked hard at his grades to become a recruit of ISIS (Internal Security and Intelligence Services). But when they come recruiting he is not chosen. No one understands it – least of all Nik. That night their boarding school is attacked and a young boy is kidnapped. Nik ventures across the bridge to the other side to try and get him back. The side of the Breken – a people very different to his own. Or are they? Nik discovers many untruths, some closer to home than he’d like.
