Terror Kid Reviews

A powerful novel about justice, trust and idealism gone wrong that will make you look again at your definition of a terrorist. * Labour Research *
A powerful, accessible and revelatory novel with its finger firmly on the pulse of contemporary social and political issues. * Liverpool Echo *
This book in my view is amazing. In some ways, the book is emotional and some readers may find it upsetting. It is a thriller that keeps you interested. If you are interested in action or thrillers, this book is perfect for you * Teen Titles *
Terror Kid takes an uncompromising look at the problems of prejudice in both policing and society and is a timely reminder that skin colour or ethnic background should not be used to determine guilt * Crime Review *
