A Rag, a Bone and a Hank of Hair
A thrilling futuristic novel set at the end of the 22nd century. The government is cloning new people and has manufactured a 1940s wartime family who are unaware that nothing they know is real. Our hero is sent to monitor these 'Reborns' and gradually becomes aware of a horrible underlying secret. A brilliant plot twist at the end turns the book on its head. An exciting sci-fi novel which will appeal especially to boy readers, with the topical subject of cloning. This extraordinarily prophetic 80's novel, which was published in the Oxford Children's Modern Classics series in 1999, is now reissued in a smaller, mass-market paperback format.
