loved it.

Fantastic story, well read and very well written. Compelling. Thoroughly recommend, and not just for teenagers.

Great insight into street life.

I felt like I was on the roller coaster with Link, and Ginger and think that it was written well on their side. The story of shelter however wasn’t as good for me, it felt like two different authors had written it. Good little short story though, sadly based no doubt on true events

Felt it was better to be read than listened too.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes, although I read some of it too and it was laid out in a better way and it is more obviouse to tell one character from another.

If you’ve listened to books by Robert Swindells before, how does this one compare?

Never listened, but have read some of his books and it is in a similar style.

Wrong book cover displayed!

Studied by 16 year old Swedish students for English class. The performance was superb, but my students felt it dragged a bit. I liked it though :-)
