Spare Parts

Kelty is a C-grade citizen of the Greater Melbourne Megalopolis, a city filled with towers that stretch halfway to the sky. While Skywalkers - the A and B-grade citizens - live above the clouds with access to all the wonders of the 21st century, Subbies like Kelty must dwell in the darkness of the streets below. Desperate to avoid her perceived destiny, Kelty is faced with the unthinkable: a choice between a hopeless future or leaving everyone and everything familiar behind to join the Space Corps.

Audible Editor Reviews

In a futuristic Melbourne, Kelty finds herself part of the underclass, literally living under the skywalkers. Kelty can't raise her status, unless she makes a drastic choice. Sally Rogers-Davidson's Spare Parts explores just how desperate class issues can make someone on the wrong side of the tracks. Australian actress Suzi Dougherty performs this audiobook with zeal. Her voice, with its agile pacing, makes this intense story jump alive. Meanwhile, she particularly shines when giving voice to the colorful and youthful characters. American kids will find Dougherty's Australian accent just about clear as a bell. Young listeners looking for a futuristic adventure story should snap up this audiobook.

Publisher's Summary

Kelty is a C-grade citizen of the Greater Melbourne Megalopolis, a city filled with towers that stretch halfway to the sky. While Skywalkers – the A and B-grade citizens – live above the clouds with access to all the wonders of the 21st century, Subbies like Kelty must dwell in the darkness of the streets below.

Desperate to avoid her perceived destiny, Kelty is faced with the unthinkable: a choice between a hopeless future or leaving everyone and everything familiar behind to join the Space Corps. There's one catch - first she must give up her body for transplant.

    "Godd Young Adult Title"

    I probably would have liked this book better if I was a young teenager. While there were rough scenes, even they felt like they were covered with sugar coating. Had a really good concept but didn't feel real.
