Synopsis

The Bad Tuesdays 2: Strange Energy by Benjamin J Myers

Children everywhere are still in danger and only Chess, Box and Splinter can help in the second adventure in Benjamin J. Myers' brilliant debut sequence. The Tuesdays' journey to realise their perilous destiny continues in the second of the Bad Tuesdays sequence. Chess, Box and Splinter are faced with new enemies and allies - and still they are warned to 'trust no one'. Can they even trust each other? And can they rely on their own judgements and make the right decision when constantly faced with so many difficult choices?
