Dan Salmon’s novels are a hit with Hooked on NZ Books reviewers. In her review of 2020’s Neands, Eleanor wrote the story ‘mirrored the 2020 pandemic experience,’ while Lucy described it as a gripping novel about teenagers living in a chaotic world. At the end of Neands, in a world that has turned against them, Charlie, Pru and Ivy have found refuge but they are desperate for answers.
