Winner of several awards — including the New Zealand Post Book Award — Genesis is a compelling and utterly riveting read set in a post-apocalyptic world. Young Anax has staked her whole future with being accepted into the Academy — the only place on earth that is still stable and ordered and free of the ravages of war. But as the exam progresses, Anax begins to see that things are not as she imagined, and she begins to question her dream of joining the Academy. Fast-paced and practically un-put-downable, Genesis is recommended for readers 14 and up.
