The riveting Chaos Walking trilogy by two-time Carnegie Medalist Patrick Ness, reissued with compelling new covers -- and a bonus short story in each book.

"Narrated with crack dramatic and comic timing. . . . The cliffhanger ending is as effective as a shot to the gut." -- Booklist (starred review)

Todd Hewitt is the only boy in a town of men. Ever since the settlers were infected with the Noise germ, Todd can hear everything the men think, and they hear everything he thinks. Todd is just a month away from becoming a man, but in the midst of the cacophony, he knows that the town is hiding something from him -- something so awful Todd is forced to flee with only his dog, whose simple, loyal voice he hears too. With hostile men from the town in pursuit, the two stumble upon a strange and eerily silent creature: a girl. Who is she? Why wasn't she killed by the germ like all the females on New World? Propelled by Todd's gritty narration, readers are in for a white-knuckle journey in which a boy on the cusp of manhood must unlearn everything he knows in order to figure out who he truly is.

Unique Premise in Cool Dystopian World
By: Ganda Rakhman

How many bad things can you think of to put your characters through? For a middle grade book, it's quite violent. But that is the only few flaws on the book. Yes, there are many misspellings and unfortunate decisions from Todd, the main character, but it's very understandable considering that he's a simple 12 years old kid. It's actually what makes the storytelling feels real, unique, and fresh, aside of the cool premise of the world he lives. Imagine, everyone can hear everyone!! That is a great premise that can open a lot of examinations: about privacy, communication, inner expression, and many more. It also makes a good first book, since it is open for huge character growth and exciting villain.
