The Lovereading4Kids comment
A thrilling, thought-provoking novel from the critically acclaimed Kevin Brooks. Dawn Bundy is fifteen. She doesn't fit in and she couldn't care less. Dawn has other things on her mind. Her dad disappeared two years ago and it's all God's fault. When Dawn's dad found God, it was the worst time ever. He thought he'd found the answer to everything. But that wasn't the end of it . . .
A message from the author:
Q. What happens if the person you love most in the world - a person who is genuinely kind and loving and good - what happens if one day that person does something unimaginably terrible to you? What happens to their goodness, to your love, to everything you once believed? Does it all just die?
What happens when all you're left with is a messed-up heart, two dachshunds, a broken mother and the sound of The Jesus and Mary Chain playing constantly in your head? How does that make you feel? And what happens if there is no one to blame except God because he doesn't exist?
A. The is what happens - the story of Dawn Buddy.
Killing God by Kevin Brooks
Dawn's dad is a recovering substance abuser, a one-time child molester, and...a born-again Christian. Religion: That's his latest addiction. But as far as Dawn is concerned, the Man Upstairs has robbed her of the father she once loved - drugs, drinks, and all.
She'd just better pray that the fallout from her father's past life of crime doesn't catch up to her first.
'Kevin Brooks just gets better and better, and given that he started off brilliant, that leaves one scratching around for superlatives' – Sunday Telegraph
'He's an original. And he writes one hell of a story' – Meg Rosoff
