The Sky so Heavy

by Claire Zorn

Set in the Blue mountains and Sydney this novel will appeal to adolescent readers. Set in the aftermath of a nuclear attack overseas our region experiences isolation, winter conditions, food shortages and uncertainty.
Sixteen year old Fin is the main character and he leads a small group as they search for sustenance, hope and family.As well as creating suspense issues such as relationships, faith and corruption are explored. 

An easy and thoughtful read.
