Lydia’s last thought before darkness closed over her mind was that the strange, swirling storm had trapped her. Would it ever let her go? Fleeing onto the moors when she is unfairly accused of being a thief an extraordinary storm suddenly whirls twelve-year-old Lydia into the future – a computer-dominated future where her home town is ruled by a cruel tyrant. As Lydia struggles to get back to her own time, she discovers she must face a terrible confrontation . . .

  6. I loved your book also it,s a great book I think your book thief is good but there is just one bit of the book that I do not like it,s when old Lidia says we should kill Mickey and show his mum what we have done it,s that bit I do not like because she was to kill him and was to show his mum that,s not nice but the rest I love when lidai might run away I love it so much and thanks so much for writing it thanks.
