Stone Rider

David Hofmeyr

"Intense, original, compelling . . . bristles with attitude. So cool. Just read it."--Michael Grant, New York Times bestselling author In the vein of the cult classic Mad Max series, crossed with Cormac McCarthy's The Road and S.E. Hinton's The Outsiders, this inventive debut novel blends adrenaline-fueled action with an improbable yet tender romance to offer a rich and vivid portrayal of misfits and loners forced together in their struggle for a better life. Adam Stone wants freedom and peace. He wants a chance to escape Blackwater, the dust-bowl desert town he grew up in. Most of all, he wants the beautiful Sadie Blood. Alongside Sadie and the dangerous outsider Kane, Adam will ride the Blackwater Trail in a brutal race that will test them all, body and soul. Only the strongest will survive. The prize? A one-way ticket to Sky-Base and unimaginable luxury. And for a chance at this new life, Adam will risk everything. More Praise for Stone Rider "Hofmeyr constructs a bleak futuristic world and a landscape both sublime and unforgiving...[in his] novel about self-preservation and reclaiming one's humanity amid brutality."-Publishers Weekly "A dangerous race is run with everything on the line in this gritty dystopian thrill ride."--Kirkus Reviews "Gritty nonstop action."-School Library Journal "A truly gripping dystopian novel."-VOYA From the Hardcover edition.
