Product Description

Product Description

‘Who am I?’ asks thirteen year old Josh as he wakes up in hospital after what seems to have been a hit and run accident. Inside his head where his memories should be is a big black hole. Then a woman arrives claiming she’s his mum and the girl with her is his eleven year old sister Abi. But when they take him home to an old farmhouse in the country, he finds it’s a place he can’t remember. What really happened to his dad and why does the family dog treat him like an intruder? As his memory flashbacks speed up, he realises that a friend has died in strange circumstances and he alone has the key to what happened. But someone will stop at nothing to prevent him solving the mystery and when his pursuers close in, Josh is on the run for his life.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read for a tricky age group 11 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this for a 12 year old boy and 13 year old girl, neither being at easy ages to interest in reading, let alone find something they will actually read. They both loved it. The characters were intriguing and plausible (for a very discerning and critical teen/pre-teen audience) and the plot twists and turns in a real yarn-spinning way. I couldn't put it down either. I hope Carolyn Sally Jones writes more for this age group, she has a real way of communicating with young people. This book is a real gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Multi age thriller 5 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story is based on a situation many children may have imagined, but one which actually happens very rarely. It had all the suspense of an adult crime novel - a real page-turner. I (an adult) couldn't guess what was around the next corner of the plot, so experienced some true shocks through its twists and turns. A great way into the crime/thriller genre for, say, a 10 - 14 age range. The characters all have traits most of us have met in our lives and the language the child characters use is up-to-date and believable. A great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming YA Thriller 26 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Charming and thriller don't often go hand in hand, but the prose is exquisite and the craft of the dialogue exceptional. Jones has created great characters that take you along on an uncertain path, twists and turns and worries for the readers, which is what you would expect from a thriller. Recommended for YA gifts and a great read.
