This was a fantastic read and once I had started it I could not put it down. I had to finish it in one go because it was such an awesome book. Mrs hegarty the evil school teacher reminded me of a teacher in my school. I also liked it becasue I knew the places in the book in real life because I used to live in Didsbury in Manchester. My favourite character was Rafi beacuse he bunked off school like I have always wanted to. This book is good for 8 to 13 year olds and suitable for boys or girls. I hope she writes another one soon because this one was epic.
