Railhead

Ooh yes, science fiction. Always been one of my favourite genres of writing. It starts with a young boy called Zen Starling, who steals objects and sells them, to help support his family. However, he finds a girl in a red coat is following him, and he wants to find out more... this is my personal favourite of this years Carnegie's, since everything is linked together perfectly and all loose ends are tied up at the end of a book, but one, for the next book in the series. It also shows contrast to exaggerate points, such as the Noon family compared to the Starlings, and how there is still a market and people living in cramped apartments, in this far-ahead future. This makes it very enjoyable to read and I will be reading the next in the series. :)
