The Knife of Never Letting Go

SummaryIn this book, we follow the life of Todd Hewitt. He is twelve years and twelve months old, an almost-man, and has been lied to his whole life. One of the lies that Todd had been told is that when the Spackle let the Noise germ loose in the war, it killed all of the women. With his loyal dog, Manchee, that truth quickly becomes a lie as he stumbles upon Viola Eade, a silent foreigner that crash landed on New World with her family. Together, they all run away from Prentisstown in hopes of finding safety and a cure for the Noise that haunts them day after day. The trio has to run from a crazy priest, the frighteningly intense Mayor, and an army of men on their journey.
