  1. I really enjoyed this book but it did take me a while to get into but once i did it was really good.The storyline and twist was amazing and was really unexpected.

  2. Wow! When this book gets going, it really flies!

    Mia relies on her brother Jamie to cope with her mother’s mental health issues, but now he’s demanding that they take matters into their own hands and force people to pay attention to their problems.

    So when the firebell rings, Mia knows Jamie has something to do with it…

    A great read, with a brilliant ending.

  3. Mia’s school get hijacked by a gunman and Mia thinks it is her brother. She stays in the school risking her life to find out who the gunman is. She end up in hospital and she tells us her brother died when they were born.

    Mia is shy and doesn’t stand up for herself. Jamie is an aggressive person and is not very friendly. Mum is strange and does stupid things but she loves her children.

    It is an exciting book. It is interesting and appeals to teenagers like myself.

    I would recommend it to all.

  4. this book was really good and everyone would enjoy it, i dont want to tell any of the story lines because i will give too much away,

    this book should be in the shortlist in my opinion.

  6. Mia is a shy quiet girl who is sufferring as her mother has health issues making her cry or throw tantrums at her and her brother Jamie, but Mia doesnt know what to do about it so she tries to get help in every way she can, but Jamie seems to be going off the rails and thers nothing Mia can do, but when an alledged gunman comes into the school Mia thinks she knows who it is and has to stop him.
