Interest Age 14+ Reading Age 8+. A thrilling story with big issues at the heart of it, Saved tells how Luke makes a choice between life and death when he bravely defies his parents’ beliefs after witnessing the terrible crash in which his sister is badly hurt. He knows that his parents wouldn’t let her go to hospital to get help but, he also knows that if she doesn’t, she will die. Who should Luke trust? The doctors or his parents and the pastor of the church that they belong to? Luke makes good choices is this highly readable story written in a simple and accessible way.
A Note from the author Eleanor Updale:
I often go to meetings at a big London hospital. We discuss all sorts of problems that worry the staff and patients. I would never use a real case in my books, but some of the things I have heard about over the years have given me ideas. I have also visited America, and met people with extreme religious views. That made me wonder happens when all children start to question their parents’ beliefs. Saved is not a true story, but the events here could happen I’m sure.
Perfect for Reluctant Readers as well as keen readers. To view other titles we think are suitable for reluctant readers please click here.

Luke and Anna belong to a cult that thinks medicine is evil. But when Anna is injured, Luke must work out what he really believes - and who he can trust. Thought-provoking drama.
