A tale of loss, manipulation, and the search for the truth
What would you risk to turn back the tide?
Essie Glass might have been a typical eighteen-year-old – had life not dealt her an early blow.
Struggling to come to terms with the loss of her family in a terrorist attack, and left with nothing,
Essie’s not kidding herself about her world. She wants change, and she’ll be honest about it, whatever the cost. From behind her keyboard, that is…
After all, this is England, 2035. Earth’s climate continues its accelerating collapse. A powerful elite controls the disaster-weary population with propaganda, intimidation, and constant surveillance.
By all appearances, Alex Langford is a respected local businessman – until Essie discovers that he’s a murderous conspirator who’d see the planet die for his fortune.
When their paths collide, Essie must decide: how much is she really willing to pay for her honesty?
Her choices, and the events she sets in motion, pit her against both enemies and supposed friends as
she risks more than just her life to thwart them.
Will she succeed in revealing the truth? And will she survive?

Author Bio –
Michelle lives in Worcestershire, UK, with her husband Daniel, their two young children, and a cat called Lyra Belacqua. By day, she works for the NHS, a job which she has almost
as much passion for as fiction. Her first joyful steps into creative writing were at the age of ten, when the teacher read out her short story in class. A slapstick tale of two talking kangaroos breaking out of a zoo, the work was sadly lost to history. Still, Michelle never forgot the buzz of others enjoying her words.
More recently, she has had several flash pieces published, was long-listed for the Cambridge 2020 prize for flash fiction, and placed first in the February 2020 Writers’ Forum competition with her short story The Truth About Cherry House. Tipping Point is her debut novel.

This is an interesting idea and the execution was almost as good.
I love the character Essie and I think she is very unique and also quite interesting to see just what she is like.
I do find that the pace was very quick for this book which did mean it could get a bit confusing especially as it was pushing things very fast.
The fact that it was in the future it still brings up memories of the past. This book deals with terrorist attack thst happened in the main characters past. Reading this so soon after 9/11 also made it harder to read.
It was good and I did like it even if it had some confusing parts as the first maybe 1/3 I barely made any sense to me until after I got really into it. This book is a political style as well and while not always my style this one was really well written.
