When life is a dangerous game…

A novel in Irish full of mystery and adventureFor readers aged 10-14 years

I’m sorry. I’m afraid. Help me…

Hóng is a computer game Evan loves to play on the internet. But then he gets a strange message from another player, Yin, begging for help – not inside the game, but out in the wide world. Who is Yin and what is she afraid of? Can Evan, his friend Rio and his sister Síofra put a stop to some dirty business, not only in Ireland but on the far side of the world?

HÓNG will keep young readers turning the pages to the very end.

Childrens Books Ireland Awards, Judges Comments:Set in contemporary Ireland, this compelling story of adventure, computer games, friendship and mystery presents a refreshingly convincing version of young Irish-speaking teenagers engaging with an English-speaking world.

Is scéal eachtrúil agus bríomhar é Hóng, scríofa ag Anna Heussaff, faoi chluiche ríomhaireachta agus faoin dáinséar atá ann d’imreoirí an chluiche Evan agus Rio. Dá mbeadh suim ar bith ag léitheoir óg i gcluichí ríomhairí, bheidís an-tógtha leis an tseoid seo. Ach tá níos mó ná cluichí ríomhaireachta i gceist anseo, tá neart eolais ann faoin tSín agus faoi chúrsaí cairdis, agus faoi chúrsaí clainne ar ndóigh. Is léir gur aithin na moltóirí an méid seo nuair a bronnadh ‘Judges Special Award’ air ag Gradaim Leabhar na Bliana CBI 2013 i mbliana. Is leabhar den scoth é. D’oirfeadh an scéal eachtrúil seo do pháistí ó dheich mbliana d’aois ar aghaidh. Tá gluais ar chúl an leabhair chun cabhrú leis an bhfoghlaimeoir óg. Choinneofaí suim an léitheora ó thús go deireadh an scéil.
