Fascinating for teenagers but adults will find much food for thought in this clever and exciting book.This is the story of 10 year old Ben whose father died in the 9/11 attacks. He is staying with his grandparents whilst his mum is in hospital. Ben becomes friends with Priti a Muslim girl who is convinced that her brother is a suicide bomber. Ben, Priti and Ben's cousin Jed turn detective to try to foil the bomb plot. There are lots of twists and turns iin the plot to keep the reader turning the pages and the characters engage the reader's emotions.
