The Lovereading4Kids comment

Interest Age Teen Reading Age 7+ Pete Johnson brilliantly captures a moment in two teenagers lives as he gets under the skin of what the pressures they are under. ‘Just Chill’ – Lara’s motto propels Dominic on a wonderful six hours of fun when the pair walk out of an exam early. Having both feigned sickness for different reasons Dominic, nick-named the Nerd and Lara, the hottest girl in the class, find fun in sharing their very different but equally real problems as they enjoy a day off from the pressures of their lives.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 12+

Synopsis

Six Hours by Pete Johnson

Dominic has been studying for this history exam for weeks. So when he finds himself faking sick and following Lara, one of the coolest girls in school, off the grounds he wonders what's happened to his common sense. Both of them just feel like they've had enough. They need a day off - a day to just chill.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 12+
