Raining Fire

Written by Alan Gibbons

Raining Fire Synopsis

The gun is the coward's fist. The gun is power. Alex and Ethan are growing up on an estate where there are just two choices: sport or crime. Ethan is selected for a football training programme in the US, his chance to escape the gangs that terrorise his neighbourhood. But Alex is drawn into an explosive feud with a gun at its heart. In this gripping and absorbing real life thriller, Alan Gibbons explores the complex issue of gun crime, and the far reaching consequences it can have.

Raining Fire Press Reviews

Fast-moving and tense ... A thriller that provides an insight into street violence while never glamorising it * School Librarian * Fast-paced and straight-talking, Alan Gibbons' writing always does justice to the moral complexities of the problems it sets out to explore * Book Trust * Adventurous, breath-taking and realistic -- Isaac, Bolingbroke Academy, Year 8 * Books For Keeps * The characters in this moving and fast-paced story are real and the dilemmas they face believable. There are no easy solutions here, but courage and integrity shine through. * Carousel *
