Ticket To The Sky Dance


Formats & editions


'Her words got faster, louder, until she could hear herself screaming things about bodies, and kids getting their brains electrocuted.' Shog and his twin sister, Jancie, are orphans who live on the streets. They know every free food place in the city and how to make the best of looking helpless and cute. Their favourite possessions are hologram players and Zeus boots - they are freedom children of the twenty-first century, using their good looks and cunning to survive. When Class Act, a famous, international modelling agency, welcomes them to its private world of extravagance and luxury, they can't believe their luck. But as the newness of luxury wears off, it is replaced by terrible fears: why were they chosen and what is really happening on the upper floors of the famous, horseshoe-shaped building?
A thriller by the award-winning author of The Silent One, the Shadrach trilogy and Starbright and the Dream Eater.
