After reading and loving quite a few books in the excellent Bite series, I bought this for another gripping novel that I couldn't put down! And I got what I was looking for, and more! The story follows two twins, Josh and Rachel, recounting the events of one of their summer holidays camping with the family. The plot may seem pretty innocent at first, but things soon become much more than either of the twins could ever have imagined. It is told by both teenagers, giving two different views on the same situation. It is an insight into teenage attitudes towards many controversial issues, and focuses on their lives with the gritty reality kept in. This is the only book that has ever made me cry! Sue Mayfield really brings the characters to life and involves the reader in the story. I was on edge reading it, having no idea how it was going to end. The great thing is that this book isn't predictable, but ends perfectly. The story is beautifully told from start to finish. If you like other Bite books, you'll definately like this!

This book is nothing special its filled with irrelevant details and dances around the main plot for far too long. It is also painfully obvious. I had high hopes but if i had to decide on buying it all over again....i wouldnt...
