A 13-year-old boy journeys to a mountain with two other boys after learning the truth about the alien invaders who control their world
Nobody knows how long it has been since the Tripods came. Nobody remembers life on Earth before they enslaved it. Humans live in scattered farms and villages, kept quiet and obedient by the mind-controlling Caps implanted when they reach their teens.
Will Parker's time is fast approaching - but a chance encounter with a madman convinces him that it may still be possible to resist the alien masters.
So begins a terrifying story of survival and defiance - and Will's journey to the White Mountains.
'The Originals' are the pioneers of fiction for young adults. From political awakening, war and unrequited love to addiction, teenage pregnancy and nuclear holocaust, 'The Originals' confront big issues and articulate difficult truths.
