The Girl With All The Gifts

The Girl With All The Gifts

‘ORIGINAL, THRILLING AND POWERFUL’ – Guardian
‘HAUNTING, HEARTHBREAKING’ – Vogue
The phenomenal word-of-mouth bestseller that is now a BAFTA Award-nominated movie

NOT EVERY GIFT IS A BLESSING

Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant Parks keeps his gun pointing at her 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 a very special girl.

Emotionally charged and gripping from beginning to end, THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS is the most powerful and affecting thriller you will read this year.

‘A great read that takes hold of you and doesn´t let go’ – John Ajvide Lindqvist, author of LET THE RIGHT ONE IN
