Author Shalini Bolandabout this book: In the near future, Riley hunts her sister's killer, travelling across a ravaged and unrecognisable Britain with her neighbour, Luc.

The story jumps to the present day, where Eleanor is falling in love, but she has no idea what's coming. This time next year, civilisation won't be quite so civilised . . .

When I initially came up with the idea for OUTSIDE, back in 2005, there was hardly any post-apocalyptic and dystopian fiction around. I wrote it because it was the type of novel I enjoyed reading, but I couldn't find what I wanted on the shelves. Now, seven years later, there is an abundance of post-apocalyptic fiction to choose from and I couldn't be happier.

Outside is a coming-of-age thriller with an element of romance, set against a post-apocalyptic back drop. It's a story that makes you think about what could happen in the future if society broke down.

Praise for OUTSIDE:

• "... what set this apart for me is that the setting for Outside could actually happen in the next 20 years if things continue the way they are. And that made it far more terrifying."

• "Riley is a gutsy, feisty heroine, who you can't help but fall in love with."
