Bad Influence

eBooks of the Month Modern and Contemporary Fiction

LoveReading View on Bad Influence

A novel of peer pressure and the horrors of being 10, or wanting to fit in and not knowing how to stop.  Frightening.
Comparison: Michael Frayn’s Spies, Jonathan Coe’s The Rotters’ Club, William Golding’s Lord of the Flies.
Similar this month: William Nicholson, Jonathan Tropper.

Bad Influence Synopsis

Meet Carl: cruel, fun, exciting - a bit older than you, and totally in control.

Your best friend Ollie likes Carl - maybe even more than he likes you. You don't want to lose Ollie, so you tag along: playing Carl's games, doing what he says, getting into trouble.

But how far will Carl go before he stops? And just how bad does he have to get before you say No?
