The Roar by Emma Clayton

An interesting first novel - Sci Fi. The occupants of New London live in fear and squalor behind 'the Wall' frightened of the plague caused by animals so there are none in this dystopian world. Then a group of children are given the chance to win wonderful przes that will make their families rich by playing a very complex computer battle game. Mika, one of twins, finds some solace for the loss of his twin by playing this game - but is there something sinister behind the game or is it a means of escape...

Tightly plotted, gripping and exciting read.
