Description

The first book in the Black Spiral Trilogy Set in the near future, this first book in a fast-paced trilogy will hook you in from the first page. Violet Black and Ethan Wright are both in a coma after contracting the lethal M-fever. They have never met- I couldn't speak, but I was trying so hard to communicate and then . . . then . . . I pushed. And something, someone, pushed back. Her name is Violet. Violet, but she is sunshine-yellow, and I need to find her because I think she might be just like me. But there is a far more serious reason for Ethan to find Violet- the sinister Foundation is trying to hunt them down. Reviews of Eileen's previous books- 'A Trio of Sophies doesn't so much as start as launch the reader into the centre of a storm that will hold you until the very last secret is solved.' - Weekend Herald 'Merriman writes what teenagers want to read, and she certainly knows how to write it well.' - NZ Books on Invisibly Breathing 'Merriman just seems to be able to cut straight to the intensity of a relationship, or a first relationship - the anguish, drama, the second guessing and the doubt, and the pure electricity of those first physical encounters' - Radio NZ on Catch Me When You Fall 'I found it to be compelling, challenging, and heartbreaking, but very real. It handles teen issues with grace and sensitivity but doesn't shy away from honesty.' - Tots to Teens on Pieces of You
