Product description

Review

Disney on steroids... a surefire discussion starter about desire and power. ― Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

The Kingdom by Jess Rothenberg is a revelation. It’s uniqueness and ingenuity absolutely blew me away. I cannot recommend this clever, chilling and stunning novel enough. -- Midnight Book Girl

An exciting and thought-provoking Young Adult novel. ― Juno

When the book starts it has the air of a book about Disney princesses brought to life, but make sure you persevere, as this young adult narrative becomes increasingly dark. As Ana’s growing awareness and understanding is explored, so subplots make you question the reality of her thought processes. Is she truly just an automaton after all? There is a murder and there is a solution but the book actually, quite cleverly, explores so much more. I did not expect to be recommending this book when I started. I did not even think I would read it to the end, but I did. I recommend you do the same -- Crime Review

Review

A half-android, half-human girl is accused of murder in this tautly-paced YA thriller told through fragmented flashbacks and court testimony, set in a futuristic fantasy theme park.
