The Lovereading4Kids comment
No Facebook, no phone, no music, no makeup, no shampoo! Jess’s life is turned upside down when her mum drags the family off to a remote island in Scotland when things go badly wrong for dad at work. Jess, her older sister Millie and Mum are soon living a back-to-nature life with a bunch of odd balls and no contact with the outside world. How on earth will they survive? And why are they there? While Millie seems to be falling apart and mum is locked in her own misery, Jess begins to make friends with the other teenagers and to discover that they are not all as cut off as it seems! Together with her new friends, Jess sets about getting her life back on track. Jess’s sharp observations make this hugely entertaining as well as raising interesting questions about current teenage life!
Firewallers by Simon Packham
Jess returns from a nightmare day at school to find her dad’s been suspended from
work and gone into hiding. To escape the slobbering newshounds all eager for the full story, Mum drags Jess and her sister off to a remote Scottish island. Modern technology’s forbidden, and there’s only a bunch of teenage uber geeks for company.
Without Facebook or even her mobile, Jess feels totally disconnected from everybody back home. And why are they there anyway? What are they really running away from?
‘Simon Packham gives us yet another excellent contemporary teen novel, complete with one of the best narrators for ages.’ The Bookbag
