One Crow Alone (After the Snow)

Written by S. D. Crockett

The long, bitter winters, including frequent power cuts and fuel shortages, are getting worse, and a state of emergency has been declared across Europe. Fifteen-year-old Magda joins forces with the arrogant, handsome Ivan and smuggles her way onto a truck bound for London - where she hopes to find her mother. But London, when they reach it, is a nightmarish world, far from welcoming. Magda's mother is not to be found - but criminals ans terrorists abound - and as the lost girl struggles to come to terms with her changing situation in a dangerous world, she eventually becomes friends with a rag-tag group of travellers planning a new home and future.
