The can opener's daughter

Davis, Rob2016
Books, Manuscripts
Vera's mother is the Weather Clock; she presides over the satellite town of Head Acre, which hovers a few hundred feet above Bear Park. Her father is a can opener; he spends most of his time in Vera's pocket. The Acre is a cruel and oppressive place, shaped by the dictatorship of Vera's omnipotent, megalomaniac mother, the Prime Minister of Weather and Chance. No wonder Vera fled. Stranded in the dark wood beyond Bear Park's boundary fence, the teenage Vera Pike again finds herself looking for an escape route. At the police station, her friend Scarper Lee is in a pickle jar, alive for now, but only until tomorrow: his deathday. With the help of Castro Smith, Vera hatches a plan. But can she save Scarper from his certain fate?
