Rowena Evans‘ mid-teen science fiction thriller, Switch, will be released in Australia, New Zealand and the UK on 15th February 2019. This is the long-awaited sequel to Drums and Power Lines, and continues almost immediately following the prior events. It will be released at a later date in North America.
“Evans captures the Australian country landscape beautifully,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG Publishing Australia, “and yet the parallel worlds depicted are also universal in character, and at the same time, slightly askew from what we perceive as normal. Drums and Power Lines was a delightful, thrilling read, and I am sure middle grade and young adult readers – as well as adults as often is the case – will love this next chapter in the continuing story.”
Spectacular artwork for the cover is by Rowena Evans.
Ivan hurried away from the ridge. His heart beat fast and his hands were shaking. The shock of seeing Cal appear was considerable. Yes, he and Reenie had persuaded Hugo to play his drums at sunset, but Ivan realized now that the last thing he expected was to succeed.
Ivan, Cassie and Wilfred, Reenie and Cal desperately miss each other; the friendships they made in their similar but different parallel worlds six months ago.
When Cal reappears in Ivan and Reenie’s world, the turmoil and restlessness that has lurked in each of them explodes into real life, throwing all, and the unsuspecting Jess, into a whirlwind of adventure, uncertainty and discovery.
