“No one’s coming for us. Not our families, not the police. No one.”
Ryan, Jes, Alyn and Elsa are Nowhere; a concrete cube in the middle of a dense forest. Imprisoned inside are one hundred teenagers from all over the country. They’re all criminals… but none of them remember committing any crimes. Who has put them there? What do their captors want? And how will they ever break free…?”
No recollection of the past, of what they really did, and why on earth they are in a deserted location at the first place.
Questions are incrementally increasing, the itch to escape, and the country in agitation.
I don’t know what’s with the number – 100 – though, I’m curious, to what this symbolizes or if it going to make sense with the plot. Well, I, at least encounter the same portion of figure from The 100 – the title gives it away, of course. Both are in the same genre, Sci-Fi and a good read. Also, the POV’s of every main protagonist – this book is told in multiple POVs.
Nowhere is somewhat political in taste. The thing from some film which there is an involvement from the government. Somehow creeps the hair out of me yet this thrill and intrigue me. The secrets and conspiracy revolving in the story. How every piece is connected and the unveiled purpose of every character. You’ll just end to go with the flow to unlock more and more pieces. This book is such a curiosity-building story.
A page-turning science fiction novel which brings you to every chapter of concealed truths and pasts. Nowhere is the first book in the trilogy which introduces you to each character before they are imprisoned and the part they have to escape and survive and fight for their lives. Full of intriguing turns, evil scheme, mysteries, and confidentiality. Gonna read the next two sequels soon. You should try this out, too.
Jon wanted to be an author from a very young age – he was encouraged by an English teacher after writing a very gruesome story as a child (he talks all about this in his presentation). Jon chose not to go to university as he thought it would interfere with his writing, so he had a string of fairly random jobs, while writing on the side whenever he could. Ten years later, at twenty eight, he was offered a publishing deal by Puffin books for a YA novel, Nowhere and the two following books in the series, Anywhere and Somewhere.
Nowhere has been shortlisted for the Bolton and Calderdale children’s book awards, winning the Calderdale Children’s Fiction Award 2014, Hampshire Independent Schools book award and Reading Libraries Battle of the Books award. In 2014 he was nominated for the Carnegie Medal.
Jon has also won the Calderdale Discover Learning children’s fiction award 2014.
Jon is based on the border of West London and Buckinghamshire.
