    These books will be enjoyed by any child aged 9 or over who enjoys (or endures!) the sparklier side of tween life.

But his life is changed forever when one of his friends is murdered. As the victim's nearly new football boots hang in tribute on railings behind fluorescent tape and a police appeal draws only silence, Harri decides to act, unwittingly endangering the fragile web his mother has spun around her family to keep them safe.
