The Lovereading4Kids comment

A breathless teen thriller set in the Tokyo underworld. The chief protagonist in this all-action adventure set over a short time-frame is a teenage boy searching the back-streets of Tokyo for his missing sister.
Graham Marks’ novels are a terrific blend of mostly urban contemporary life and sometimes a mix of magical realism. Heaven knows where he gets his ideas from but the important thing is that all his novels are fantastic adventures that hold the reader on the edge of the seat from beginning to end.

With only five days to get his act together, Adam has got to sift through the seedy back-street hostess bars, dodge the local yakuza and find out where the hell Charlie is in the craziness that is Tokyo.

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
