Worldshaker by Richard Harland

Allen & UnwinAfter picking up world shaker you won’t be able to put it down. Short listed for the 2009 Golden Inky awards World shaker is amongst the best books for teenage readers.

Col lives in a giant walking robot known as the Juggernaut. He has been chosen as the next supreme Commander of the ship and has to prove he can manage the position currently filled by his grandfather. But what he isn’t expecting is the filthys, their repulsive smell, and sooty faces. So when one comes seeking his help will he turn on his family or help them in their battle for freedom.

Excellent read!  I would recommend World Shaker to any teenager boy or girl. Very well written!  Great story line that leaves you wanting more. 9/10
