One Crow Alone

Publisher: Macmillan

In the midst of a seemingly never-ending winter, Magda gradually loses all the things that give her life direction and meaning. Her grandmother is dead, the other inhabitants of her small Polish village have been evacuated and her mother is hundreds of miles away in London.

She eventually finds a way to reach London with the help of Ivan, an enigmatic and unreliable nomad. But London isn't as she expected and instead of finding her mother’s welcoming arms, the pair find themselves walking into a nightmare. 

From the author of After the Snow, this powerful young adult novel creates an apocalyptic vision of global climate change. Crockett explores the best and worst aspects of human nature and the value of self-reliance
