September 2010 Book of the Month.

A thrilling adventure in which the stakes are dangerously high, Almost True is an emotional roller coaster. When someone is shot dead on the doorstep instead of him, fourteen year old Ty, already under police protection since witnessing a murder, has to find another new identity. As the police have failed to protect him, Ty is sent to live with grandparents he doesn’t remember ever meeting before. Ty learns to live a new life but he can’t help hankering after the past and especially, he can’t resist going back to see Claire - an action so dangerous that it puts his life at risk.

Synopsis

Almost True by Keren David

Ruthless killers are hunting Ty so the police move him and his mum to a quiet seaside town. But a horrific attack and a bullet meant for Ty prove that he's not safe. On the road again, Ty's in hiding with complete strangers ...who seem to know a lot about him. Meanwhile he's desperate to see his girlfriend Claire, and terrified that she may betray him. Ty can't trust his own judgement and he's making dangerous decisions that could deliver him straight to the gangsters. A thrilling sequel to When I Was Joe, shot through with drama and suspense. Praise for When I Was Joe : * I was so gripped that I couldn't put it down even to brush my teeth or run my bath. Caroline Lawrence, author of the Roman Mystery books. * An edgy and contemporary thriller about the life changing dangers of knife crime - Lovereading * This book is exceptional! Buy it. Read it. Love it.

Reviews

They come to kill me early in the morning. At 6 a.m. when the sky is pink and misty grey, the seagulls are crying overhead and the beach is empty. I'm not at home when they arrive. -- from the book
