A quick Barrington Stoke book which came into the room today.
As I read the first chapter I thought perhaps it might be quite gruesome but then when you realise one of the characters is a ghost and wants a second chance I got into it. I liked the way the main character had to think about whether to change the future or not and weigh up all the pros and cons.
Disappointed though because there were two spelling mistakes (of the same word) on two different pages. Not good when it is aimed at teenager

I don't know what possessed me to pick this up, maybe the ghost of Len Grimsby. Picked this up in the YA section of a library and the blurb seemed interesting enough but I think this was more for kids. I continued reading anyway to see where it'd go and for a story about resetting time it's intriguing to see he butterfly effect play out. Who'd have thought one action could lead to such a massive chain reaction. What this book explores is how even if we try to undo mistakes, there are people ...more

This is a short, sharp little book that I read in an hour. About a ghost who shows a boy how he accidentally killed him. It's fun and has a nice, twisty plot and I also love the fact the book is printed on especially designed yellowish paper (with words spaced out) so dyslexic young people can read it more easily.

It's not a high scorer on the stars as it kind of feels like the book was written in a couple of hours - there isn't a great deal of depth to it. Still an enjoyable read though, especia

It's important to remember that books like this are written for kids who don't usually want to pick up a book. And this is really well-written compared to the standard books for reluctant readers. It may not have the complexities one would expect from a YA novel, but it has enough content for substantial discussion about consequences of actions. If I were only judging this just against other reluctant reader titles, I'd give it 5 stars.

Jännityskirja kauhu-alulla, jossa kuolleista palannut pistää sormensa luodireikään ja kaivaa pikkuisen aivomassaa pyyntönsä tueksi...

Älä heitä krikettimailaa suutuspäissäsi, voit aiheuttaa samalla kuoleman. Voit myös saada mahdolisuuden korjata tekosi. En tiedä, kumpi on pahempaa.

Helppolukuista enkkuvinkkaukseen.

Fine for reluctant readers, well-written look into the butterfly effect, how one action has a chain reaction of consequences.

This book was very brief it did not contain many details, which I'm sorry to say it bored me quite a bit.
