No Limit

Author(s): Holly Childs

Young Adult & Teenage

It's December 2012, Ash's connecting flight out of Auckland has been grounded by a volcanic eruption, and there's a serious apocalypse vibe going around. But at the airport she spots a girl. Hyperreal, freakishly attractive. A dream girl. Ash is obsessed. Stuck in this city, getting pinged from one stranger to the next, what else can she do but hope to run into her again? And all the while the volcano haze in the air is getting thicker. Life in the cloud. Everyone's having trouble getting online. Is it the world that's ending, or just the internet? Either way, all the city's Disney princesses, juggalettes, partyographers and straightedge kids are headed out to one last rave. Everyone looking for the same thing as Ash: someone who will stay with them after the collapse. Told in sugar-rush prose, No Limit is a book for everyone who's ever been delayed, half alive, grounded with no place to sleep. Restless, searching, flashing between internet cafes, disaster movies, net art, Tazos, vegan junk food, guided meditations on tape, the countryside. Characters check Twitter, send Facebook messages, take Instagram photos, chat on Skype - but the big question for Ash isn't how to live in the age of the internet, it's who's going to be there when it falls apart.
