Gay Friday: Alex Londons PROXY
Prinz & Prügelknabe in dystopischer Welt

Category: News – Darkstar – 15:00

Proxy Alex London“Syd ist schwul, aber er ist auch ein Action-Held, und ich hoffe, er wird in Bezug auf seine aufregende Flucht und aufgrund der krassen Kampfszenen beurteilt und nicht aufgrund seiner Sexualität“

(Alex London in einem Interview über die Hauptfigur seines Jugend-Romans “Proxy“).

In Proxy verlegt Autor Alex London das Motiv von Prinz und Prügelknabe in eine dystopische Welt: 

Darum geht’s:

Knox was born into one of the City’s wealthiest families. A Patron, he has everything a boy could possibly want – the latest tech, the coolest clothes, and a Proxy to take all his punishments:

When Knox breaks a vase, Syd is beaten. When Knox plays a practical joke, Syd is forced to haul rocks. And when Knox crashes a car, killing one of his friends, Syd is branded and sentenced to death.

Syd is a Proxy. His life is not his own.

Then again, neither is Knox’s. Knox and Syd have more in common than either would guess.

So when Knox and Syd realize that the only way to beat the system is to save each other, they flee. Yet Knox’s father is no ordinary Patron, and Syd is no ordinary Proxy.

The ensuing cross-country chase will uncover a secret society of rebels, test both boys’ resolve, and shine a blinding light onto a world of those who owe and those who pay. Some debts, it turns out, cannot be repaid.

A fast-paced, thrill-ride of novel full of non-stop action, heart-hammering suspense and true friendship – just as moving as it is exhilarating.

Klingt spannend und ungewöhnlich! Ich will auf jeden Fall mal reinlesen (aber wann nur?!)
