[Kevin Brooks'] pacey plots, masterly style and philosophical ideas in novels such as Martyn Pig, Killing God and Black Rabbit Summer have made him a cult among teens. This, though, is the big one. Its power as literature draws on a reality that few adult novelists have the stomach to address. It should be read by everyone. (Amanda Craig The Times 2010-06-26)
Children's Book of the Month: Gripping, streetwise and profound. (Geraldine Brennan The Observer 2010-07-11)
iBoy is a hugely readable revenge fantasy....confoundedly gripping. (Nick Tucker Independent on Sunday 2010-07-11)
iBoy is a thrilling young adult novel from Kevin Brooks.
Before the attack, sixteen-year-old Tom Harvey was just an ordinary boy.
But now fragments of a shattered iPhone are embedded in his brain and it's having an extraordinary effect...
Because now Tom has powers. The ability to know and see more than he could ever imagine. And with incredible power comes knowledge - and a choice. Seek revenge on the violent gangs that rule his estate and assaulted his friend Lucy, or keep quiet?
Tom has control when everything else is out of control. But it's a dangerous price to pay. And the consequences are terrifying. . .
