The Lovereading4Kids comment
Award-winning writer Cathy Macphail, master of the unexpected twist, leads readers into a tense and sometimes violent story before revealing the truth. Newly arrived on an estate in Glasgow, Logan is thrilled when he finds a friend. Baz seems cool and assured and brave. All the things that Logan is not. Their families are also very different – Baz’s family seem to care for him a lot; Logan is in perpetual conflict with his mother and stepfather. Being friends with Baz gets Logan in with a cool group and provides some action. A LOT of action. When things begin to go very wrong for the boys Logan has to rethink just who Baz is. And he is surprised by the answer.
Devil You Know by Cathy Macphail
Baz was the kind of friend I wanted. Everyone seemed a bit afraid of him. Forced to move away from his dad in Aberdeen to a run-down Glasgow council estate, Logan thinks he's pretty lucky to have made any friends -- let alone Baz and the boys. Baz might have a bit of reputation, be a bit mouthy, but he's the kind of friend who'll stick up for you; who'll make life interesting -- or should that be dangerous? When Logan, Baz and the boys get caught up a local turf war Baz is the first to fight back. But the aftermath leads Logan and his friends deeper into a world of real-life gangs, threats and lethal revenge. How far will Baz go, and will Logan follow him? Award-winning author Cathy MacPhail once again delivers a stand-out, action-packed teen thriller with a sensational twist.
