The Lovereading4Kids comment
Ally Kennen’s Beast was one of the best debuts of last year and has been lauded with praise and sold in large numbers as well and we feel at Lovereading we helped spread that word-of-mouth through earmarking it early on to members of Lovereading4kids. Here, in Berserk we have something that is just as good. The author is so good at describing the crazy, warped and funny world of troubled teenagers and here when a young teenage boy decides to write to a prisoner on death row, who in turn tries to take over the boys family on his release is brilliantly portrayed and definitely not for the faint-hearted.
Berserk by Ally Kennen
What happens when there's no-one around to tell you when to stop? A spine-tingling novel about a boy who breaks the rules from the author of BEAST. When 15-year-old Chas finds a website asking people to write to prisoners on Death Row, he decides it would be funny to get letters from a murderer. He writes to an inmate, pretending to be his mum, but the chilling replies are not at all what he expects. Chas's own wild escapades eventually land him in a young offenders' institute, where he learns that his scary penpal has been released. He's heading for England to track down Chas's mum...
“The most gripping and original new children's novelist to be published this year” The Times
