    "Plausible dystopia"
    What did you love best about Boonie?

    JD lives in a world that is dry and barren. He has only ever known the company of his parents and the fearsome 'Silvermen'. He has been told stories that once water fell from the sky and there were oceans and rivers. He doesn't really believe it though.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Boonie?

    After his father is killed he seeks his mother who has returned to the city. He meets a strange old man who has had his lips sewn together and know the secret of how to find water.


    What three words best describe Joe Jameson’s performance?

    Joe Jameson's voice and accent suit the telling of this story well. His southern drawl when voicing the 'boonies' helps create a convincing atmosphere.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Water is life.
