The Boys Who Saved the World

by Sam Mills

In Brief

A schoolboy is drawn into a disturbing sect that claims to have founded a new religion. In their sights is a local Indian girl they accuse of being a terrorist. Teenage fantasy and bigotry turn fatally serious when the boys kidnap her and begin to plot her murder.

Why you should read it

Young Adult fiction doesn't come much darker than this. An intensely alarming portrait of the dangers of religious doctrine and teenage mythologising, this acute, urgent story of imprisonment and peer pressure holds a warning for all generations.
