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.

If you like William Sutcliffe you might also like to read books by William Golding, Michael Frayn and Jonathan Coe.

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
