Product description


Listed as one of the 10 Spy Books for Teens recommended by the Scottish Book Trust.

“John Townsend is skilled at maintaining the tension in Crash Dive... a pacy, upbeat adventure story in which Barney – a troubled and sometimes troublesome boy, but a very able and witty one – has to commute by air between his divorced parents. He gets caught up in an espionage plot but, because of his ‘attitude problem’, no one will believe him when he asks adults for help. This engaging book would be a good one to give to a misunderstood teenage reader whose behaviour is regarded as ‘challenging'."


'Barney is the very engaging central character of this contemporary thriller: a 13-year old boy that many young teenagers will relate to. He's funny, clever and, like many teenagers, totally misunderstood by the adults around him. Barney's parents have split up. His dad is now based in ****Scotland**** and every two weeks, he flies, as an 'unaccompanied minor', to spend the weekend with him. It is on one of these flights that Barney's life takes an unfortunate turn! Barney's adjustment to his changed family circumstances and his troublesome school life is a great backdrop to the fast-moving terrorist plot that Barney is unwittingly caught up in. Barney's one of those kids that always seems to land in trouble through no fault of his own! As a result, no-one takes his concerns seriously and he is left to tackle the situation alone with a little help from his best friend, Laura. Within a few paragraphs, Crash Dive gets right into the story, setting a sinister brooding atmosphere. This is a fun, pacy, page-turner with some genuinely shocking moments. A lovely substantial-looking book but with really good-sized , well-spaced text making it easy on the eye and a very accessible read.'
