Smashing, looting, killing, loving-
the teenagers take over all Britain
'a shattering sensational novel...a real original'
The adults have committed suicide with Easyway pills, and the teenagers have taken over. Free to smash, loot and love as they like, the gangs roar through the streets on their expendable
brand-new motorcycles in search of disappearing stocks of lipstick, petrol and food. Free of adult control the youngsters commit every sin but hypocrisy...until they meet the future.
'Grim and often macabre, this contemporary fantasy has a vigorous fertility of invention, rattling pace and dialogue that crackles with vitality'
'arresting and terrifying'
