The Territory: Escape

by Sarah Govett

£7.99 Order here

The year is 2059. Fifteen-year-old Noa Blake has passed the exam to stay in The Territory – but her childhood friend Jack has been shipped off to the disease-ridden Wetlands, a death sentence in all but name.

Noa and Raf have vowed to rescue him, but how? With an electric fence, gun towers and a police state monitoring their every move, getting into the Wetlands looks impossible, let alone getting home again.


Second in The Territory trilogy, The Territory, Escape follows Noa, Raf and Jack as they battle through a world of raiders, mosquito swarms, and psychopathic prisoners. Noa faces her own battle too – is it just friendship that drives her and if not, is Jack still even hers to claim?


Praise for The Territory:

The Telegraph, best YA books of 2015

‘Gripping dystopia with a keen political edge’ Imogen Russell Williams, Metro

‘This is a truly exceptional novel, exciting, gripping and intense’ BookTrust


Praise for The Territory: Escape:

'A little bit political, a little bit thought-provoking and a little bit of a moral dilemma. Lots of tricky questions to answer, and it forces you to think about how you might make some difficult decisions under pressure - and if there ever even is a right answer!' Jo Morrell, The Pool

‘The second installment in Sarah Govett’s trilogy set in a future Territory is as great as the first… exciting and inspiring’  The Bookwitch 
‘An action-packed sequel to its excellent precursor, Escape still reads well as a story in its own right… Govett's page-turning writing style underpins her philosophical questions about education, utopias and what we value in communities - and each other. An excellent and insightful read.’ BookTrust 
‘One of the best books of all time!’ Proudfangirl 
'This is a truly exceptional novel, exciting, gripping and intense.' Forreadingadicts
