AKA In My Mailbox
2788. Only the handicapped live on Earth. While everyone else portals between worlds, 18-year-old Jarra is among the one in a thousand people born with an immune system that cannot survive on other planets. Sent to Earth at birth to save her life, she has been abandoned by her parents. She can’t travel to other worlds, but she can watch their vids, and she knows all the jokes they make. She’s an ‘ape’, a ‘throwback’, but this is one ape girl who won’t give in.
Half Sick of Shadows:
Edward and Sophia are twins. They live in The Manse, at the end of The Lane, with a cemetery as their back garden. It is there, on the day that Granny Hazel dies, that Edward is approached by a stranger with a time machine who asks to be his friend. And it is there that Sophia misunderstands a promise she made to their father, unknowingly consigning herself to future tragedy.
Then there is Alf, the strange boy who Edward meets at boarding school. Alf is poet and philosopher, mystery and muse, and he leads Edward towards universes of possibilities he might never have dreamed of. When School is over, they return to The Manse together – and Alf meets Edward’s sister.
