This story takes place in a future England behind The Wall, a concrete barrier built after the Animal Plague to protect the people from the outside world. A year ago Ellie went missing, and everyone believes she is dead except for her twin, Mika. When it is announced that all twelve and thirteen year olds can participate in a series of contests to win extraordinary awards, Mika knows this is the way to find Ellie. Despite the growing danger, he decides to become part of the competition.
The Roar is an exciting book with a powerful sense of urgency. It's easy to read and compelling at the same time. The plot is elaborate and unpredictable. I highly suggest it for anyone who likes science fiction, mystery, or interesting characters.
