Black Rabbit Summer
by Kevin Brooks

Pete Boland was busy doing nothing that summer. Long, stiflingly hot, lazy days stretched ahead of him. Then she called. It was Nicole. 'Listen, Pete ...you know that funfair, up at the recreation ground... I thought we could all meet up ...you know, for old times sake.' But, where there are old times there are old tensions.

Black Rabbit Summer Summary


Black Rabbit Summer by Kevin Brooks

Black Rabbit Summer is an intense page-turner from award-winning, young adult writer Kevin Brooks. A group of old friends, affected by drugs, alcohol, and memories, find themselves in the middle of a crime scene.

Pete Boland was busy doing nothing that summer. Long, stiflingly hot, lazy days stretched ahead of him.

Then she called.

It was Nicole.

'Listen, Pete. . . you know that funfair, up at the recreation ground...I thought we could all meet up...you know, for old times sake.'

But, where there are old times there are old tensions. And as secrets, bitterness and jealousies resurface, five old friends are plunged into the worst night of their lives. . .
