  1. Ive read this book and it is just as good as the other books that i have read. Malorie’s books are so captivating and inspiring its so hard to put the book down.
    I wonder what other future books malorie has on her mind.
    Whatever it is I’ll be racing to the book shop or the library and my eyes and mind will eat every word of the book just like i have done in all the other books. All Malorie Blackmans books are still lurking in my brain ready to read the next and the next and the next ……………! 🙂

  2. I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!! It sooo gripping! im reading it with my class in secondary school we have to read 2-3 chapters a day but i love it sooo much that i secretly read it more than we were supposed to! I need to buy this book, im begging my parents. Malorie Blackman inspired me to try to write short stories and improve my writing skills! THANKS MALORIE FOR THESE WONDERFUL BOOKS!!!

  3. i think malorie blackman is a inspirational writer provoking children or adults to read more

  4. i am also reading it at secondary school with malaika mushtaq i am also reading secretly but we have finally finished hurray

  5. OMD!!! This book is amazing. I started reading it and right from the beginning I couldn’t put the book down. Every part of it hooked me and it was just superb. Thanks for the great read Malorie xoxo Macy

  6. I thought this book was so intense! I couldn’t put it down! At our school, you are very well known by all the students, we have several books by you and I’m aiming to read all of them! Great read! x

  7. It is extremeky good! I loved it so much and was literally hooked into it! It was our class book in english once and everyone begged for more to be read!

  8. I really love this book to bits! I finished the whole book on the day I got it. This story shows the hidden friendship of Gemma and Mike but also the hatred they have for each other. At the end of the story, Gemma is now more sociable with everyone but still needs to get the hang of it. I would love a second book to this!
