This review is from: Malarkey (Definitions) (Paperback)
Malarkey is an exciting book that can grip right from start to finish. The book will certainly relate to teenagers as it gives them a large amount of what really goes on in a school, none of the nice Harry Potter stuff where the worst things you could do would be to call someone by a bad name. It deals with many matters that occur during normal teen's lives, bullying, teachers never believing your side of the story and other smaller issues. The idea of such a well organised gang as there is in Malarkey is a bit too far out of the ordinary to apply to real life, but the fact that the teachers are totally oblivious to what really goes on in the school is no surprise. Keith Gray's writing is all on suspense. Two highschool kids, one on his own (Malarkey) new to the school, without anyone really caring about him. One, with the rest of the school fearing him. These two fight with quick minds and each have something on the line. One - innocence. The other - money.
A good, fast paced, exciting book that all teens will love.
