The Chrysalids

I first read this book when I was 10yrs old and what an impression it made. It changed my view of how one can get engrossed by words on a page and the magic that happens when an author has the ability to capture the readers’ imagination.

Be prepared to explore a post-apocalyptic society where things need to change, however, leaders control by fear. Meet a small community of individuals who because of their uniqueness and difference have to voyage across the ‘badlands’ to find an environment to be safe, to be accepted for who they are and have the sense of belonging they yearn for. A fantastic read!
