Author Vic James joins Simon in the Radio 2 Book Club to discuss her new YA novel, Gilded Cage, and we'll hear from our listener reviewers.

About the Book: Britain's magically skilled aristocracy compels all commoners to serve them for ten years - and now it's the Hadleys' turn. Abi Hadley is assigned to England's most ruthless noble family. The secrets she uncovers could win her freedom - or break her heart. Her brother Luke is enslaved in a brutal factory town, where new friends' ideals might cost him everything.

Then while the elite vie for power, a young aristocrat plots to remake the world with his dark gifts. As Britain moves from anger to defiance, all three must take sides. And the consequences of their choices will change everything, forever.

As well as discussing our Book Club choice, we'll also unleash a brand new Confession and Matt Williams will have the latest sport.
