"Adventure story great for 13-14 year olds…"
I read most of this book in one sitting! It is a thrilling adventure story with a cool and brave 13 year-old big sister as the hero of the book. Britain is invaded by a sinister foreign power and Beth's little brother Peter goes missing. She risks capture and punishment to mount a daring lone rescue as the fate of her brother lies in her hands. The story speeds along on a wave of suspense and action with a healthy dollop of first romance and family loyalty. It is very well-written and you are quickly transported into a world of betrayal, brainwashing and evil neighbours. Shadowy figures, a handsome resistance fighter and a teddy bear called Jackson - this is a book that I would have loved to read as a feisty young girl. Beth is a likeable, real character that you readily identify with - not a cartoony perfect action hero but a normal girl who finds herself in scary circumstances and rises to the challenge. A must read!
