The Rosie Black Chronicles: Genesis. TBR challenge.

The Rosie Black Chronicles: Genesis
By Lara Morgan  (Australian author)
Walker Books:2010

Summary from Goodreads.
Five hundred years into the future, the world is a different place. The Melt has sunk most of the coastal cities and Newperth is divided into the haves, the “Centrals”; the have-nots, the “Bankers”; and the fringe dwellers, the “Ferals”.

Rosie Black is a Banker. When Rosie finds an unusual box, she has no idea of the grave consequences of her discovery. A mysterious organisation wants it – and will kill to get it.

Forced to rely on two strangers, Rosie is on the run. But who can she trust? Pip, the too attractive Feral, or the secretive man he calls boss?

This is a YA dystopian  science fiction book, full of action and adventure. While it begins on Earth, it moves to outer space and Mars.  It was recommended to me by one of my students.  It is the first of a trilogy and I will definitely read Equinox the next one very soon.  I am looking forward to it. 

While this is written for the 12 to 16 year old, I think anyone of any age who likes this type of story would enjoy it.

This book was part of Wendy's TBR challenge February
This book was also part of Evie's TBR challenge.


  1. I know there's an awful lot of them out there now, but I'm a sucker for a good dystopian book. I hadn't heard of this one, but it sounds good!
