Riot

by Sarah Mussi
£6.99   paperback  Hachette Children's Books (2014)

Riot by Sarah Mussi Revolution starts with disillusion.
 
A terrifying, topical novel that's essential reading for teens everywhere.
 
England is struggling under a recession that has shown no sign of abating. Years of cuts has devastated Britain: banks are going under, businesses closing, prices soaring, unemployment rising, prisons overflowing. The authorities cannot cope. And the population has maxed out.
 
The police are snowed under. Something has to give. Drastic measures need taking.
 
The solution: forced sterilisation of all school leavers without secure further education plans or guaranteed employment.
 
The country is aghast. Families are distraught, teenagers are in revolt, but the politicians are unshakeable: The population explosion must be curbed. No more free housing for single parents, no more child benefit, no more free school meals, no more children in need. Less means more.
 
But it is all so blatantly unfair - the Teen Haves will procreate, the Teen Havenots won't.
 
It's time for the young to take to the streets. It's time for them to RIOT:
 
OUR RIGHTS, OUR BODIES, OUR FUTURE.
