We Other, by Sue Bentley
Jess Morgan's life has always been chaotic. When a startling new reality cannot be denied, it's clear that everything she believed about herself is a lie. She's linked to a world where humans - 'hot-bloods' - are disposable entertainment. Life on a run-down estate, her single mum's alcoholism and violent boyfriend, become the least of Jess's worries. Drawn into a new world of rich darkness, she is torn between love, family and a growing sense of a new, powerful identity.
Sue Bentley writes for children and adults. She is best known for her Magic Kitten, Magic Puppy, Magic Ponies and Magic Bunny series for 5-9 years old. We Other is Sue's first book for young adults - who she considers to comprise everyone from thirteen to eighty!
