The Lovereading4Kids comment
Interest age 12+ Reading age 7 - Reluctant, struggling or dyslexic readers with a reading age of around 7 but an interest age of 12+ will thoroughly enjoy this heart-stopping and thoughtful adventure from this award winning author. A tense story of how life can change from one moment to the next. Best friends Matt and Jake are near the end of their hike; their sore feet are desperate for a rest. But, in one split second, Matt finds himself dealing with the catastrophe that has happened to Jake. A striking adventure with a dramatic twist in the tail.
A Note from the author Tanya Landman:
A friend of my mum’s was talking about what the two saddest words were. The idea two words summing up some life-shattering event stuck in my head. For a long-time the idea did nothing but sit at the back of my mind. But at last it shape itself into a story. Two Words is the result.

Two Words by Tanya Landman
Jake and Matt have trained hard for a weekend hiking with the school. They've got the gear, they've got fit - and they've got homework: something 'to keep their minds occupied' while walking. But Jake is more occupied with finishing first and beating Lee Harper. The weekend careers towards a dramatic climax - and Matt returns to school with his homework done in a way he could never have imagined. A heartstopping tragedy.
