A cleverly interlinked novel written in four parts by PRINTZ AWARD-winning author, Marcus Sedgwick, about survival and discovery, and about the effect of the spiral, a symbol that has no end, on all our lives.

The spiral has existed as long as time has existed.

It's there when a girl walks through the forest, the moist green air clinging to her skin.

None will ever go back to the same place.

And so their journeys begin...

I have to say that I loved two of the stories, liked one of them and the remaining story, I was speechless at the end. To see the central theme in the stories, it could plainly be seen in some of the stories but in oth...
