ONE GLIMPSE OF A TERRIFYING FUTURE.
ONE CHANCE TO CHANGE EVERYTHING.


After suffering a knock to the head, 15-year-old Esso experiences a chilling vision: that night he will witness the violent deaths of everyone he knows. He writes off the out-of-body experience as a strange dream - until a series of frightening coincidences prove that the vision is just hours away from coming true.

There is only one person who can help him rewrite the future.

The trouble is, she hasn't been born yet . . .

Recenzii

I think what I love most about thisbrilliant bookis how it creates a few mini worlds (Esso's, Rhia's, the Upper World) and brings them all together in a beautiful dance.The Upper Worldby Femi Fadugba made me laugh, made me feel. I loved Esso and Rhia's wry observations.
For days after reading [The Upper World], I was left with what I can only describe as an electricity surging through my spirit. Fadugba is animpeccable weaver of universesand this is a book I will return to time and time again.
[An] ambitious and highly addictive sci-fi thriller. . .The theory of relativity and time-travel science may drive the incredibly tense and compelling plot, but it is Fadugba's skill in weaving this around complex characters and a very powerful human story that makesThe Upper Worldso special.
Wow!The Upper Worldis atime-twisting, mind-bending thrill ride. I raced through the pages trying to keep up with Esso and Rhia - if I could read at the speed of light, I would have! This south London epic will stay with you long after the final page.
A thrilling, electric book -sosharp and quick, so witty and wiseit leaves you gasping.
A rollercoaster of a story, like Patrice Lawrence'sOrangeboywith anInception-style twist.Exhilarating and exceptional!
The Upper Worldis an astoundingly impressive debut.Thought-provoking, thrilling, funny, and brilliantin every sense of the word.
Truly mind-bending, fiendishly clever, original and stylish -I was blown away by this novel.Philosophy meets physics meets Peckham . . . No doubt about it,The Upper Worldis destined to stand the test of time.
The Upper World took everything I thought I knew about physics, time, space, and energy, and twisted it into a new,electrifyingstory that I couldn't put down!

Descriere

'A time-twisting, mind-bending thrill ride . . . I loved it!' - Holly Jackson

'I couldn't put this book down' - Daniel Kaluuya


IF YOU HAD THE CHANCE TO CHANGE YOUR FUTURE, WOULD YOU TAKE IT?


This epic thriller is soon to be a major Netflix movie starring Academy Award winner Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out, Black Panther, Judas and the Black Messiah).

Esso is running out of time and into trouble. When he discovers he has the ability to see glimpses of the future, he becomes haunted by a vision of a bullet fired in an alleyway with devastating consequences.

A generation later, fifteen-year-old Rhia is desperately searching for answers - and a catastrophic moment from the past holds the key to understanding the parents she never got to meet.

Whether on the roads of South London or in the mysterious Upper World, Esso and Rhia's fates must collide.

And when they do, a race against the clock will become a race against time itself . . .
