‘Imagine a world where children are valued because they are in short supply. Tarrin is a child in a society of old people who have traded fertility for longevity. With no children of their own, the closest most people get to parenthood is to rent a child. Won from his father in a card game, Tarrin knows he is valuable and is always on the watch for “kiddernappers” who snatch children off the streets. But there’s greater threat – the “Peter Pan” operation, which will trap him in eternal childhood. Tarrin has to resist all these dangers in a scary, thoughtful story about the value of youth.’
