Written for Young Adults by a 14year old.

 Book Extract...
The doors to the cattle truck slammed shut as they filled the last few, precious spaces in the already over-crowded car. The train jerked to life and sped off as we began our journey into the unknown.

The car was damp, dark, with only a few slivers of light filtering through the small gaps in the wooden boarding. People sobbed, terrified for their lives. Terrified of the unknown.

We were jammed into a corner; hot, fetid bodies beside us. We wrapped our arms around us as tears trickled down my cheeks and I silently cried. What would become of us? What would become of Abby, my other head? One could not survive without the other. Were we doomed to die on this trip into hell?

Days passed by slowly, I had no idea how long we had been in the hot, airless car. The train had stopped once or twice and, although I tried hard to peer through the gaps in the boards, nothing could be seen.  No-one came for us. No food, no water and only one bucket to relieve ourselves in. One bucket for more than eighty people, most of whom could not get near it.
