The Lovereading4Kids comment

Fast-paced inventive writing with an original plot involving strange creatures and weird science, it's guaranteed to satisfy the hunger of voracious readers everywhere. Chess Tuesday and her brothers, Box and Splinter are street rats. Nobody likes them but now along with children everywhere they are being pursued by two formidable and opposing sides and disappearing. Hot on action, rich in texture, this marks the sudden and spectacular arrival of a talented new novelist for children. This is a novel that was unusually found on the slush pile at Orion - ie it came in direct to the publisher rather than through a literary agent and is the first such novel picked out from the slush pile since 2002.

The second in the Bad Tuesdays series is Strange Energy.

Synopsis

The Bad Tuesdays: Twisted Symmetry by Benjamin J Myers

Chess Tuesday and her brothers, Box and Splinter are outcast children who live on the fringes of society. Nobody likes them but now they are being pursued by two formidable and opposing sides. The Twisted Symmetry seek eternal life and to obtain this they need children; lots of children.

As the time spiral enters its final phase they are preparing to achieve their goal. But for their nemesis, the Committee, it is the chance to infiltrate the heart of the Symmetry and destroy them. But is Chess the key to victory for both sides? If so, why? Does the girl with an imperilled existence and an unknown past really possess such a terrifying legacy for her future?

Reviews

'an excellent page-turner that positively hurtles along, brimming with menace and plot twists and lots of ambitious vocabulary.' Daily Telegraph

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.
