A new revised and illustrated edition of the acclaimed dystopian YA thriller set in a future world where cats are strictly controlled and marketed at huge prices. Written in Cardiff, Wales by the award-winning author of over sixty titles Jon Blake, the novel tells the story of Jade, a law-abiding teenage girl, who finds an unregistered and therefore illegal cat in her back garden, takes it in, and ends up on the run from the law with her feral friend Kris. Rutgers described the book as 'a compelling read' while School Librarian called it 'a very satisfying and brave book that does not go in for easy answers'. Originally published by Hodder in the UK and Albert Whitman in the US, the book was selected by the International Literacy Association for its Young Choices list, and by Bookbag for its top ten teen romances. The new edition also features beautiful artwork by Cardiff illustrator Rebecca Harry.
