Move over vampires, Ultraviolet has arrived! Part "Doctor Who", part Poppy Shakespeare, this compelling story is well worth a read.

Alison Jefferies, at just 16 years old, finds herself in a nightmarish situation having been sectioned following the disappearance of a fellow pupil at her school. Alison's memories point towards the impossible—she has somehow ‘disintegrated' another human being—but how? And why?

We follow Alison's agonising and often painful voyage of discovery as she tries to find out the truth and, in so doing, find out who she really is. We are with her every step of the way; we taste, touch, hear, smell and see whatever she experiences and we yearn for her to succeed. It's out of this world!
