Where the World Turns Wild

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Little Tiger Press

Juniper lives in a grey, concrete city, controlled with an iron grip by its so-call saviour, Portia Steel. Fifty years ago, a group of renegade eco-activists released a deadly virus into the environment and the city built its walls to keep nature – and the virus – out. There are no plants, birds or animals, and everyone is taught to fear the wild. But, born outside the walls, Juniper thinks differently: she dreams of green things and freedom.

Portia Steel doesn’t like anyone who doesn’t conform. Determined not to be sent to the dreaded ‘Institute’, Juniper and her little brother Bear decide to escape the city and undertake a dangerous journey across the wilderness in search of their first home, Ennerdale. It will take everything they have to get there and will challenge everything they think they know about the world around them.

This engaging environmental dystopia chronicles a journey of adventure, wonder and discovery. Juniper and Bear face many challenges, from city drones, mercenaries and wild animals to the search for food and water, but make surprising discoveries too. A story that invites questions about the fine line between right and wrong, and the interaction between humans and nature.
