The Last Of Us

Author:

Rob Ewing

Synopsis:

On a remote Scottish island, five children are the only ones left. Since the Last Adult died, sensible Elizabeth has been the group leader, testing for a radio signal, playing teacher and keeping an eye on Alex, the littlest, whose insulin can only last so long. There is 'shopping' to do in the houses they haven't yet searched, and wrong smells to avoid. For eight-year-old Rona, each day brings fresh hope that someone will come back for them, tempered by the reality of their dwindling supplies. With no adults to rebel against, squabbles threaten the fragile family they have formed. And when brothers Duncan and Calum Ian attempt to thwart Elizabeth's leadership, it prompts a chain of events that will endanger Alex's life and test them all in unimaginable ways.

The Universe Versus Alex Woods

Alex Woods knows that he hasn't had the most conventional start in life. He knows that growing up with a clairvoyant single mother won't endear him to the local bullies.

What he doesn't know yet is that when he meets ill-tempered, reclusive widower Mr Peterson, he'll make an unlikely friend. Someone who tells him that you only get one shot at life. That you have to make the best possible choices. So when, aged seventeen, Alex is stopped at Dover customs with 113 grams of marijuana, an urn full of ashes on the passenger seat and an entire nation in uproar, he's fairly sure he's done the right thing...

What she doesn't know yet is that for some the city's canals have an appeal of their own. They are a sort of half-world, a good place to hide for a community of curious outsiders, all with their own stories to tell - stories which might help a certain young lady to think differently about life...
