Imagine having a double to take all of the blame for your bad deeds. Would you act differently? Would you feel any guilt or remorse? The idea for Proxy first came to mind for Alex London after his partner arrived home to find he hadn’t done the dishes. “Fetch the whipping boy”, his partner said.
In a dystopian world in the future, Knox finally meets his double, Syd, who has been paying dearly for Knox’s daredevil crimes. Both feeling trapped, Knox and Syd decide to try to run from Knox’s crimes. A former journalist who has travelled the globe, Alex London creates a technologically-advanced world in Proxy that is terrifyingly believable.
The relationships in the book are intense and the teen characters tackle some tough issues. This book has a little bit of it all; humour, romance and realistic characters. Most of all, you’ll get caught up in the action from the first page. If you just can’t wait to get your hands on this book, you can download the first three chapters from Alex London's website.
