There aren't a lot of things that would coax us into a time-machine to travel back to our early teens, but The Enemy, Charlie Higson's forthcoming book for "young adults", could be one of them.

From the above trailer, featuring the Young Bond author doing his best impression of our Daniel Radcliffe cover, it sounds like it involves teenagers, zombies  - let's leave the virginal vampires to the ladies - and reduced-fare travel on the London Underground. Buy it for your son/nephew/chimneysweep today - and ask to borrow it when he's done.

The Enemy by Charlie Higson (Puffin) is out on 3 September.
