After reading When I Was Joe (my review here) I was really excited to get to read this a few months ago. I've been dying to be allowed to review it since I read it, but I was requested to wait until nearer to the publishing date. So, what do I think of the book? Read on!
This story follows on from the last book, When I Was Joe. It tells how Ty finds his new life, but it also tells a story of danger, emotion, romance and life on the run.
I really, really liked this novel! It combines excitement with teenage realism, to create a unique teen book and it always has you sitting on the edge of your seat. I'd say that both girls and boys would enjoy this novel - and that's something hard to come across these days.
I don't like this cover as much as the cover of When I Was Joe, but I do like the fact that they both look similar, so you can tell they're both in a series straight away. This is a very eye-catching cover, and I think it makes you just want to grab it instantly and start reading!
My favourite character was Claire. She was nice and she had an interesting past. I think she was one of the best characters in this.
Overall, this is a great novel that I would recommend to ages 11+ although it deals with some serious issues. It depends what you usually read. I give this a rating of 5/5 - brilliant book Keren!!
