The Lovereading4Kids comment
Winner of the Red House Children's Book Award 2009. Terrifically paced, this thriller links two teenagers who must work fast to unravel the past and discover the dangerous secret that unites them. Theo and Rachel have a lot at stake as they foil the plot of a group of extremists and get to the heart of their own identities. Sophie McKenzie holds the reader by the power of her storytelling.
The Lovereading comment:
Fast-action plots are the hallmark of this author’s thrillers and her debut Girl, Missing was the Richard and Judy Children’s winner in 2007. Blood Ties won’t disappoint either and will give you an adrenalin rush on every page. It’s compulsive and thought-provoking in equal measure and it raises issues about cloning and identity.
Blood Ties by Sophie Mckenzie
When Theo discovers the father he thought died when he was a baby is still alive, he's determined to find him. The clues lead him to the lonely Rachel, who has problems of her own, including parents who compare her unfavourably to her long-dead sister. But when Rachel and Theo are attacked by men from RAGE - the Righteous Army against Genetic Engineering - at Rachel's school disco, they are rescued by strangers and taken to meet a mysterious figure. There, they both make some startling discoveries about their identities, which will affect their past, present, d future in dramatic and life-altering ways...
'Sophie's thrillers are brilliant, you never know what's on the next page and you can't stop reading until you find out.' Robert Muchamore
