Beyond the Volcano
Liverpool writer and teacher Julie Lamin's first novel for young adults is inspired by her visits to Latin America, and in particular to Nicaragua.
"Think about it, Walter. The National Army has declared war on every young person in Sharrowland. What kind of future do we have? Will we even have a future? We can do nothing and let the Terror continue, or we can begin to oppose it"Leonie was right. Too many people had already been murdered. Along with Leonie, Walter and Stella, Oscar and Freddie share the dream of a free and peaceful Sharrowland, but first they must endure the hardships of war and overcome the haunting nightmares of the volcano.
"Combining the pain of young people's lives with a love story, Beyond the Volcano is believing, moving and gripping. Its subject is powerful, thought-provoking and sadly topical in our violent times. I couldn't put it down."
"The different characters kept me intrigued."
"The tension and fear were compelling."
