The Heaviness is the final volume in The Repossession Trilogy and the Genie Magee story.
It’s been a year since Rian, Renée and Genie survived ‘The Hunting’ burned down Whistler, fled Cobble Hill and the evil Reverend Schneider. Now they’re back with Marshall and the safety of the Apple Farm. However rest assured Schneider hasn’t forgotten Genie Magee.
Rian has been forced to live at home. He can only see Genie on weekends, but Genie is fine with that, at least she knows he still loves her, as she does him. She's happy being back on the farm with Moucher, learning new skills and taking care of Marshall - who is tinkering in the new barn - trying to replicate Cary's anti-gravity experiment. So far without any success.
Ri has made Genie study and together they took their SAT’s, Rian getting offers for College places. But the more they talk about college, the more Genie worries whether their teen romance can survive? Once Rian gets to where he wants to study he’ll be distracted by other girls. As her Grandma once said: ‘Love is like smoke, the scent of it lingers long after the fire is out.’
All this is about to change – radically. Did you think Genie and Ri could be left alone forever? Cary died experimenting with anti-gravity. Someone somewhere wants that data urgently and is prepared to do something very desperate to get it. Somewhere in the city, a meaner, vengeful Reverend Schneider is thinking of revenge. Genie is about to wake up to a whole lot of trouble and discover that some people will do anything to get what they want. It won’t be nice or pretty. What do you do when you break the law of gravity? Genie and Renée have just 36 hours to save Rian or he dies.
