Nightfall

TEEN – HALNightfall

Author – Jake Halpern/Peter Kujawinkski

Age – 12+

14 years of sunlight, then 14 years of darkness. This is the world of the island called Bliss. The sun is setting and everyone has to leave the island for the next 14 years. No-one can survive the darkness. But when Marin and Kana’s friend goes missing just before they are about to sail, they know they have to try and find him. The ships will wait for them – won’t they?

This story is an excellent example of descriptive writing. The authors had me in the forest with their characters. I could feel the creeping chill and the all encompassing darkness as the characters flee from what hunted them…
