I
IN MARGO’S WORLD, IF YOU DON’T PASS YOUR SORTING AT 18 YOU ARE RECYCLED.
LITERALLY.

“Look, if you don’t pass...” said Bane, “I’ll have to see what I can do about it. Because... well… I’ve been counting on marrying you for a very long time, now, and I’ve no intention of letting anything stop me!”

Margaret Verrall dreams of marrying the boy she loves and spending her life with him. But she’s part of the underground network of Believers – and that carries the death penalty.
And there’s just one other problem.
She’s going to fail her Sorting.
But a chance to take on the system ups the stakes beyond mere survival.
Now she has to break out of the Facility - or face the worst punishment of all.
Conscious Dismantlement.

I AM MARGARET is out 27th June. Read the first chapter now at: www.IAmMargaret.co.uk

Praise for:
Great style – very good characters and pace. Definitely a book worth reading, like The Hunger Games.”
EOIN COLFER , author of Artemis Fowl
“An intelligent, well-written and enjoyable debut from a young writer with a bright future.”
STEWART ROSS, author of The Soterion Mission
“This book invaded my dreams.”
Sr Mary Catherine Bloom OP


There is also this bit that goes into more detail about the target audience:

I AM MARGARET’s Target Audience:
·       Teenagers (14+) who are ‘churched’ but who are almost exclusively reading mainstream fiction.
I AM MARGARET has exactly the same tone, pace and style as a mainstream novel (NO preaching!) but features Catholic characters whose faith and morals are integral to the plot.
It will also appeal to:
·       Any Christian aged 14 to 100+, especially Catholics.
·       Any secular young person or adult open to reading a book that contains faith.
