Interest Age 14+ Reading Age 7+. Horror propels this dramatic but simply written story of what happens after Meg is given a hand transplant following an attack by a savage dog. Meg’s hand is ripped apart by Jet but when she comes round from her operation she finds she has a new hand. It looks harmless enough soon the hand takes terrifying actions of its own and Meg knows she must find out more about its original owner.
