Über diesen Titel:
Everyone assumes the bomb that killed Callie Rose's grandmother was the work of a nought terrorist. But Callie Rose knows the truth - and her fear of the past leaves her afraid for her future.
Her boyfriend Tobey is worried about his own future. A nought boy at an exclusive school, Tobey hopes to keep out of trouble, go to university, get a good job and leave the dangerous streets of his childhood behind. But Tobey is discovering that he can't keep clinging to some kind of no-man's land while the neighbourhood around him is carved up by rival gangs. Then he is offered the chance to earn some ready money just making a few 'deliveries'. He doesn't want a part of that world, the world of gangs. But maybe he could get away with it, just this once . . .
He little realizes how his decision will bring violence down on both himself and Callie and just how far he will go in fighting back....
"Few writers can sustain a plot as well as Malorie Blackman" ( Sunday Telegraph)
"The danger of being sucked into and destroyed by this violent world is brilliantly handled by Blackman . . . Blackman hangs an old story on a modern frame with terrific resonance" ( Inis)
"Blackman gets people, especially young adults, in all their tentativeness, determination and energy. She gets humanity as a whole, too. Most of all she writes a stonking good story" ( Carousel)
"This is a highly intelligent thriller with important things to say, and once again the distance between Blackman's imagined world and present-day inner city is beautifully judged. It deserves, and will find, a wide teenage readership" ( The School Librarian)
"It fizzes with strong emotion and grips with its authenticity, a highly-skilled piece of writing by a writer with all the right instincts . . . Gutsy, spot-on and relevant . . . and shocking too. A great read" (Phil Hewitt Chichester Observer)
