"my 13-year-old son read the book obsessively through the night. Gibbons must be one amazing storyteller" -- Sarah Johnson, The Times

"pertinent...topical and tightly written"
-- The Observer, 2 March 2003

Review

“A prolific writer with a strong sense of social justice, Alan Gibbons is pacey and thorough.” (The Guardian)

“Pertinent, topical and tightly written.” (The Observer)

"A powerful and topical children's novel exploring issues of racism, riots and real life in a Northern town. Inspired by the riots in Oldham and the events of September 11th, this is a telling portrait of key issues in today's Britain..." (The Guardian)

"Alan Gibbons's story effectively recreates the post-9/11 world. Through the eyes of two families, both sides of a British versus British-Muslim riot, and its evolution, are presented. Narrator Chris Hoban expertly moves not only the dialogue, but also the multifaceted narrative along, capturing the accents and emotions of Liam, Mike, Rabia, and Tahir. Because this is a fully dimensionally depiction of the characters, no one is totally good or bad, making the story even more wrenching. Hoban delivers all sides of this tragic story while maintaining hope and optimism at its conclusion. A splendid choice for listeners who enjoy a well-told story and for those trying to understand 21st-century prejudice." (AudioFile Magazine) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
