Maggot Moon by Sally Gardner, this award winning novel is set in an alternative 1950s Britain, where Standish Treadwell and Gramps live with the rest of the undesirables in Zone 7, and all stand terrified under the brutal regime of the Motherland. But severely dyslexic Standish sees the world through different eyes to most, and through his vision and courage he has to find a way to bring down the oppressive forces of the Motherland. How can one boy stand against an all-powerful army?
