The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the 2012 Guardian children's fiction prize and One of Julia Eccleshare’s Stand-out Children’s Book of the Year 2012
An outstanding book for all teen readers, Bullet Boys is a gripping, desperate story about boys, girls, guns and choices. Gentle Alex, son of a gamekeeper, is a crack shot. He knows all about guns; their danger and their value. Calm, sensible Levi knows nothing of guns but is good with girls and needs money. Rebel Max is fighting everything – including his family’s Army background. And Sasha? She’s just a very sane girl coping with teen parenthood, study and staying friends with her peer group. When they uncover a stash of hidden guns on an Army training base things get very dangerous indeed. It takes Alex’s very cool head to keep his friends safe! Ally Kennen has an exceptional gift for writing convincingly about teenagers, especially those who don’t conform.

Bullet Boys by Ally Kennen
Alex, Levi and Max follow the young soldiers from the local army camp on the moor. But harmless rivalry develops into something far more incendiary. When the boys discover a cache of buried weapons near the training grounds, deadly forces are brought into play. This is an electrifyingly dark teen thriller from the author of Beast and Quarry.
'Bullet Boys is tense and exciting with a twisty-turny plot and characters you can believe in. It's also clever and provoking. What more could you want?' - The Bookbag
'Kennen has a hotline to all that is funniest, craziest, most dangerous and most creative about troubled teenagers' - The Times
More praise for Ally Kennen:
"Rings with talent and compelling detail" - The Times
"A chilling, atmospheric thriller" - The Bookseller
"As taut and exciting a thriller as anything likely to be published this year" - Books for Keeps
