Sarah Broadhurst's view...

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 Fraynâs Spies, Jonathan Coeâs The Rottersâ Club, William Goldingâs Lord of the Flies.
Similar this month: William Nicholson, Jonathan Tropper.

Synopsis

Bad Influence by William Sutcliffe

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?

Reviews

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.

I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.

Emma Caddick

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!
