The Fear by Charlie Higson
Published by Puffin on 15th September 2011
The sickness struck everyone over the age of fourteen. Mothers and fathers, older brothers, sisters and best friends. No one escaped its touch. And now children across London are being hunted by ferocious grown-ups . . .They're hungry. They're bloodthirsty. And they aren't giving up. DogNut and the rest of his crew want to find their lost friends, on a deadly mission from the Tower of London to Buckingham Palace and beyond, as the sickos lie in wait. But who are their friends and who are the enemy in this changed world?
This is the third book in The Enemy series by Charlie Higson. I've really been enjoying these so far and can't wait to see what happens to all the characters next. Luckily 'The Fear' is published tomorrow so I'll be rushing out to get a copy!
