DescriptionNOT EVERY GIFT IS A BLESSING.
Melanie is a very special girl. Dr Caldwell calls her "our little genius." Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don't like her. She jokes that she won't bite, but they don't laugh. "The Girl With All the Gifts" is a groundbreaking thriller, emotionally charged and gripping from beginning to end.
The biggest tropes in fiction get worked into the ground. Vampires, conspiracy theories, BDSM erotica: it's hard to tell new stories in these genres, and even harder to write something that captures the public imagination as the originals did.
