Extraordinary Colours of Auden Dare

The Extraordinary Colours of Auden Date, by Zillah Bethel: Auden Dare is a totally ordinary eleven year old boy, except that he can’t see colours. He discovers a secret in an old shed and it changes his life. This book is set in England in the future, when there is a war raging over limited water resources. It tells an exciting, uplifting and moving story of friendship, family and adventure. With his clever new friend Vivi, Auden embarks upon a thrilling journey of discovery. I loved every page, it was hard to put it down.  The plot is intriguing and unpredictable, and I really liked that. I also like that it tackles an environmental issue too (about climate change and the importance of not wasting water).  I think that anyone over eight years old who likes science and adventure, and a little bit of mystery, will enjoy this book.
