Synopsis

Catch Us If You Can by Catherine MacPhail

Rory and Granda have looked after one another ever since Rory's dad walked out. These days it's Rory who has to look after the old man, and both of them dread being split up. But when he's told his grandad needs to go into a home and that he will be fostered, Rory is galvanised into setting out on the run with Granda. But where are they going, and where can they hide when their faces are plastered all over the newspapers and TV?

About the Author

Catherine MacPhail

Scottish author Catherine McPhail won the Kathleen Fidler Award for her first novel, Run Zan Ran, which she wrote after her daughter Katie was bullied at school. Catherine now loves writing for children.

Asked what she'd do if she wasn't a writer, she says: "If I wasn't paid to write, I'd still write books. What do I do in my spare time? I write. What is my hobby? Writing. I just love it. So, what would I be if I wasn't a writer? Bored stiff. "

Catherine is the author of the heart-stopping and highly original crime thrillers Nemesis Boys in particular will be drawn to the whole package – the dramatic cover look, the short time frame in which all four thrillers are set, the short, pacy chapters, the cliff hangers and the dynamic, independent, resourceful boy hero.

Nemesis is the junior Bourne Identity so parents who are fans of Robert Ludlum’s writing will appreciate just how good and suitable the Nemesis quartet is for their late tween and teen offspring.
