Charlie Higson - The ​Enemy - Felnőttek nélkül
Charlie ​Higson regénye egy young adult disztópia első része. Az ismeretlen vírus pusztította London romjain gyerekek próbálnak egy új világot felépíteni. A végzetes járványt követően ugyanis bomlásnak indult testű, vérszomjas lényekké változtak mindazok, akik életben maradtak és elmúltak tizennégy évesek. A kiskamaszok különböző épületekben barikádozták el magukat London-szerte, és csak akkor merészkednek ki az utcára, ha élelmet kell keresniük. A bátor Arran és az érzékeny Maxie vezette gyerekcsapat a Waitrose szupermarketben él. Tartalékaik megfogyatkoztak. Ám felbukkan egy titokzatos fiú, Jester, aki azzal kecsegteti őket, hogy a Buckingham-palotában biztonságos menedékre lelhetnek, ételben, italban sem lesz hiány. Nekivágnak az útnak, miközben városszerte mindenütt (a sikátorokban, az elhagyatott házakban, a föld alatt) lesben állnak a felnőttek. Vajon eljutnak a gyerekek a biztonságos helyre? A palotában tényleg boldog jövő vár rájuk, vagy a látszat csal? A váratlan csavarokban bővelkedő The Enemy - Felnőttek nélkül megpróbál választ találni arra a kérdésre, hogyan élhetjük túl a rémálmainkat is messze meghaladó borzalmakat. Miközben az olvasó szembesül egy másik, filozofikusabb problémával is: mivé lesz a társadalom, ha a közösségek a gyerekek elképzelései szerint szerveződnek újra?
