Sasha can see the future. But can she use her power to save her brothers and change their destiny? A stunning World War One anniversary edition of the mesmerising novel from award-winning author, Marcus Sedgwick.
It is 1915, WWI. Seventeen-year-old Sasha Fox is the privileged only daughter of a respected doctor living in the wealthy seaside town of Brighton. But her brothers, Edgar and Tom, have gone to war and Sasha has a terrible gift: she can see the future.
Her premonitions show untold horrors on the battlefields of the Somme, and the fate that awaits Edgar and Tom. But Sasha is trapped by power – no one will believe her. Even her family have lost faith in her, and she is determined to win them back, whatever the price. And it is a high one. Seeing the future is a fate too awful to contemplate – for who wants to see the end of their own story?
A beautifully written story of a child in jeopardy, set in a world full of threat – but with a heroine determined to try to change the path of Fate.
