4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging Book to get your KIds Reading., 6 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shivers (Paperback)
This book is simple to read but is still an excellent thriller and mystery which could easily be made into a film. The main character, Sam is a boy whom children will easily sympathise with and identify with. The chapters are short and split into brief manageable paragraphs. The story moves ahead at pace and there are surprises through the plot which the reader can guess at and an absolutely shocking ending. There was one brief quasi sexual scene in the book which I was not overly happy about my 14 year old daughter reading, so maybe if your child is the 9+ recommended for this book you may want to approach with caution.

Bali Rai also comes to schools to promote his book. My daughter enjoyed his talk so much she mithered me to buy his book of Amazon. We are both glad we did. The book does not patronise and all books should be written like this - there is nothing worse than a long solid block of paragraph for a reader or an eternal chapter. We'll be buying more Bali Rai.
