Teenage Book of the Month
Blade - Playing Dead by Tim Bowler
“As sharp as its title suggests, this is a relentless
and brilliant page-turner.”
For action-packed teenage reads, probably best suited to boys, look no further than Tim Bowler’s compelling new series Blade.
In the first book in the series, entitled Playing Dead a young man finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time teaming up with an unlikely ally.
Carnegie medal-winner Tim Bowler directly addresses the reader through a very likeable and engaging central character who is right at the heart of street life and youth gang culture.
Cliffhanger endings will be sure to tempt readers to
look out for the next book in the series every time. Closing In is the
second book in the series with two other titles, Breaking Free and Running
Scared to be published in 2009.
