La Cité 2: La Bataille des confins, by Karim Ressouni-Demigneux
Polly is the narrator of this second volume. She lives on a tiny British island and The City is her dream: freedom! Under the pseudonym Liza, she meets with Arthur, JC and Harry. Together they explore this strange world. She is fascinated by it all – the immensity, the surveyors who map the city, the linguists who unpick words… But she also wonders about this mysterious man called the Planner and the memory robbers who kidnap shadows and march towards the City’s outer limits where fighting rages. Liza fearlessly confronts this violence. She trusts in friendship and the growing feeling of love inside her. But things can fall apart so quickly in The City.
