About this book
One of Egmont's biggest books of 2011, this debut novel promises to be moving, funny, explosive and introduces a truly memorable voice as powerful as Frank Cottrell Boyce's "Millions". 'This is a book with high ambitions - it tries to do many things and pulls them all off - tender, sad, but also tense and exciting. An excellent read' Anthony McGowan. It's for ages 11+, but is one of those books that will crossover to the adult market too.
It's about the summer my mum went away. The summer that me and Jed and Priti tried to catch a suicide bomber and prevent an honour killing. There's stuff about how we built a tree house and joined the bomb squad; how I found my dad and Jed lost his.
