THE STUNNING NEW NOVEL FROM MULTIPLE AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR, KEVIN BROOKS
When fifteen-year-old Kenzie wakes up in hospital in a darkened room, she’s in the dark about what has happened to her too. The doctors break the devastating news that she has been struck down by a rare genetic condition that makes her skin has become transparent, revealing everything inside of her - and Kenzie feels repellent to look at.
But when a medical photo of her is leaked and goes viral, the press attention is massive. How can Kenzie live like this, when she doesn’t want to be seen at all? Can a boy who can’t even see her, be the only one to help her to find the answers. . . ?
Kevin Brooks was born in Exeter and studied in Birmingham and London. He has worked in a crematorium, a zoo, a garage and a post office, before - happily - giving it all up to write books. Kevin is the author of many acclaimed award-winning young adult novels, including Martyn Pig, Lucas, Kissing The Rain, The Road of the Dead, Black Rabbit Summer and iBoy. He now lives in North Yorkshire. The Bunker Diary won the CILIP Carnegie Medal in 2014.
Die zentrale Idee eines Menschen mit durchsichtiger Haut wirkt etwas abseitig, doch Brooks nutzt sie um grundsätzliche Fragen unseres Lebens zu stellen. Abgesehen davon, dass Brooks Situationen und die Gefühle seiner Protagonistin unglaublich intensiv zu beschreiben vermag.
