On an island junkyard beneath a sky that glows with radiation, a deadly secret lies buried in the scrap. The robot gladiator 17-year-old Eve has spent months building has been reduced to a smoking wreck, she’s on the local gangster’s wanted list, and the only thing keeping her grandpa alive is the money she just lost to the bookies. Worst of all, she’s discovered she can somehow destroy machines with the power of her mind, and a bunch of puritanical fanatics are building a coffin her size because of it. If she’s ever had a worse day, Eve can’t remember it. The problem is, Eve has had a worse day – one that lingers in her nightmares and the cybernetic implant where her memories used to be. Join Jay in-conversation with YA blogger Jeann Wong from Happy Indulgence as he discusses his new novel, LIFEL1K3. Books will be available for purchase on the night, or bring your copy from home for Jay to sign. Bookings essential. To reserve your place, visit Eventbrite or phone the library.
