The Lovereading4Kids comment

A sharp, fast-paced thriller featuring a 14-year old whose photographic memory causes him to get embroiled in a complex puzzle of kidnapping, bribery, terrorism and on the run from the federal agents. The author is an established writer of suspense thrillers for adults but this is his first foray into writing for teenagers. We absolutely loved it.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!
