People all over Claircomb are succumbing to a strange illness, thought to be a deadly new virus. But this is no virus - it is a life form so advanced that its intelligence makes a computer look like counting beads. It knows the prophecy, too, and IT is hunting down the Bright Star - to destroy her forever. Can Starbright Connor, the town's tomboy and giggly dare-devil, be the chosen one who will save her beloved family? A thriller from the award-winning author of The Silent One, the Shadrach trilogy and Ticket to the Sky Dance.
Much published, awarded and loved New Zealand children's author. Next to Margaret Mahy, Joy would be our most popular children's author. Joy now lives in Wellington but still has land in the Sounds.
