The Latest Title from Des Hunt*

NZ Writer

Des Hunt

Cool Nukes

Scholastic 2015  $18.00pb 286pp

ISBN: 978 1 7754 3342 2

Themes: Cold Fusion Machines/ Nuclear Energy/ Science Fairs

Three teenagers are working on developing something extra special for the upcoming Science Fair – a device that could solve the whole world’s energy problems. But, it comes with a price – someone may have to die to produce it. This is classic Des Hunt writing  - a topical, believable and fast moving plot/ young people who speak as you would hear them in any playground or railway station (well, perhaps toned down a little), tension and a thought provoking ending. There is also a brown and white English Springer spaniel called TC. This will be popular reading for both boys and girls (and for Des’s many adult readers…)

Year 7 up/ Age 11 up

*this was available in November but for some reason I missed the early announcement.
