The Middler is now available as an audiobook

Today we’re delighted to share a brand new audiobook edition of Kirsty Applebaum’s gripping debut, The Middler – an atmospheric story for 9-12 year-olds of forbidden friendship, loyalty and betrayal set in a near-future world.

Eleven-year-old Maggie lives in Fennis Wick, enclosed and protected from the outside world by a boundary, beyond which the Quiet War rages and the dirty, dangerous wanderers roam.

Her brother Jed is an eldest, revered and special. A hero. Her younger brother is Trig – everyone loves Trig. But Maggie’s just a middler; invisible and left behind. Then, one hot September day, she meets Una, a hungry wanderer girl in need of help, and everything Maggie has ever known gets turned on its head.

Brilliantly narrated by Adjoa Andoh, you can buy the audiobook of The Middler from Audible, Amazon, and iTunes now – and you can listen to a preview of the audiobook below.
