In this future fashioned for the 9-12 set, Alice Dare (not Alasdair) is the very normal daughter of the world’s most famous fighter pilot. The world has been invaded by invisible aliens called Morrors who want to turn the Earth into a never ending ice age. They like it cold, see. McDougall blends clever wit and loads of fun to bring this tale where 300 kids are evacuated to Mars ahead of the ongoing Morror invasion, just in time for it all to get worse. Endlessly inventive, this book deserves to be right at the top of your book-buying list.
