Set in a fictitious future similar to our world but where science and technology are more advanced and social inequality even more apparent. The Tuesdays’ – Chess, Box and Splinter – are unwanted street children who if caught in this world will be killed. But when they uncover the secrets of their past they race towards the ultimate showdown with their enemy that will decide their destiny. 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. Strange Energy is the second in the Bad Tuesdays series, the first is Twisted Symmetry.


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?


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