Melanie goes to school every day (except on weekends of course) and loves it, and especially loves to hear her teacher read greek myths to the class. She doesn't wonder why she and the rest of the class are always strapped to wheelchairs when they are out of their cells...

I wasn't crazy about this book at first, and thought the story relied too much on coincidences. Then I came to like that the characters are not stereotyped and that the author knows how to throw a puch or two here and there.
Finally I thought the ending was great!

I'll bring it back to florence71 at the next Paris meetup.

Mercí Florence71! Thanks for the book, the little bookmark, the cute card and the biscuits! I'll enjoy them with tea.

M. R. Carey is coming to Finncon 2020, so I'm trying to read this one before July.

"That's Pandora," Miss Justineau said. "She was a really amazing woman. All the gods had blessed her and given her gifts. That's what her name means - 'the girl with all the gifts'. So she was clever, and brave, and beautiful, and funny, and everything else you'd want to be. But she just had the one tiny fault, which was that she was very - and I mean very - curious."

Every morning, Melanie, aged 10, waits in her cell to be collected for class, like all the other children in her block. When they come for her, Sergeant Parks keeps his gun pointing at Melanie while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don't like her. She jokes that she won't bite. But they don't laugh. Melanie is very clever and very, very curious.

This is a different kind of zombie apocalypse.

Well, as we all know, 2020 turned out to be a different kind of year, so I had no rush to read this book. This October, I finally did. And I liked it!

My spouse read this and thought that it was quite good. And that it was worth it to read the book even though he had seen the movie before.
