The Silent Invasion (The Change Trilogy #1)
Author(s): James Bradley
Plants, animals and humans are being infected by spores from space and becoming part of a vast alien intelligence. When 16-year-old Callie discovers her little sister Gracie is Changing, she flees with Gracie to the Zone to escape termination by the ruthless officers of quarantine. What Callie finds in the Zone will alter her forever and send her on a journey to the stars, and beyond.
Set 10 years into the future, James Bradley’s apocalyptic debut YA novel delves into the not-so-unbelievable scenario of extreme climate change.
The human race is dying because plants, animals and humans have been infected by spores from space and become part of a vast alien intelligence. When Callie, 16, discovers her little sister Gracie has been infected, they flee to the Zone in Australia’s Far North to avoid termination by the ruthless officers of Quarantine. But what Callie finds in the Zone is just the beginning of this page-turning thriller for age 13 plus, the first book in The Change trilogy by the author of adult novels The Resurrectionist and Clade. His partner is Mardi McConnochie, whose Quest of the Sunfish series for ages 9 to 13 is one of our favourites and which also has a climate change theme of rising sea levels.
