The multi-award-winning novel by Patrick Ness, the first in a gripping trilogy, is now a major motion picture starring Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley. Todd Hewitt lives in a town unlike other towns. There are no women, and everyone can hear everyone else's thoughts in an overwhelming, never-ending stream of Noise. But then Todd meets someone who should not exist: a girl. Even in a town where privacy is impossible, there is a secret so terrible, they're going to have to run for their lives. But how do you escape when your pursuers can hear your every thought? "Terrifying, exhilarating and heartbreaking." Sunday Telegraph
