Matt’s on his way home from a Saturday afternoon shopping in town. His mum sends a text to check if he’s okay, as there’s been a stabbing in Renton. When a strange boy takes the seat next to him on the bus, Matt starts to wonder if he might have had something to do with it…

Reviews
  • ”'I trialled this story with my Year 8 dyslexic group and a Year 9 bottom set. It was an excellent text with which to develop inference skills: students had lots of ideas about the twist as we picked up clues. Good chapter lengths and cliff-hangers at end of sections. Humour appealed. One reluctant reader asked to take it home to finish. Another said 'can I get a read?”unheard of! One of the best.’
