Simon Stranger

The World Liberators

Simon Stranger’s previous young adult novel, Barsakh, introduced us to Emilie. The World Liberators is a new novel about Emilie, but the book is written to stand on its own.
In this new text, Emilie becomes involved in a youth protest group known as The World Liberators. The protest group is made up of young people of Emilie's age and a little older, and provides an outlet for their opinions on issues such as child labor, cruelty to animals, etc. Things begin with innocent protests, but soon develop into something increasingly more advanced – not to mention risky. The World Liberators is a thrilling political novel for young people.
