The Lovereading4Kids comment
A thrilling adventure in which the stakes are dangerously high, Almost True is an emotional roller coaster. When someone is shot dead on the doorstep instead of him, fourteen year old Ty, already under police protection since witnessing a murder, has to find another new identity. As the police have failed to protect him, Ty is sent to live with grandparents he doesn’t remember ever meeting before. Ty learns to live a new life but he can’t help hankering after the past and especially, he can’t resist going back to see Claire - an action so dangerous that it puts his life at risk.

Almost True by Keren David
Ruthless killers are hunting Ty so the police move him and his mum to a quiet seaside town. But a horrific attack and a bullet meant for Ty prove that he's not safe. On the road again, Ty's in hiding with complete strangers ...who seem to know a lot about him. Meanwhile he's desperate to see his girlfriend Claire, and terrified that she may betray him. Ty can't trust his own judgement and he's making dangerous decisions that could deliver him straight to the gangsters. A thrilling sequel to When I Was Joe, shot through with drama and suspense.

This wonderfully gripping and intelligent novel depicts Ty/Joe's confused sense of identity in a moving and funny story that teenage boys and girls will identify with...When I Was Joe is available to buy now and if, like me, you enjoy reading this book you will be overjoyed to hear that there is a planned sequel entitled Almost True due to be published in August 2010. - Bookzone4boys
