I felt there was far too much swearing. Some is expected but not every other word 😥
Would have been better if Cara had continued to read, not just the beginning.
I was impressed with this novel as the authors first published fiction. I enjoyed the characters and their family stories. Red was an amazing character who's identity is slowly unraveled in the novel. I liked that there was a strong female character who helped solve the crime through computer programming and hope this character will inspire other young girls to take this lead. I thought it was brilliant how the band was made up of people who were so incredibly different yet brought together by their love of music. I found it thought provoking that the youth of today are not ever really able to switch off when they return home from school and how this has a huge impact on their mental health.
The only thing I would say I didn't enjoy about this novel was the amount of swearing, particularly the use of the word c$#>! I know people swear and particularly young people and I also understand that it is a form of expression; I do still think that some of the bad language was unnecessary.
I would recommend this novel from age 14 and above and highly recommend to parents of teens who may not grasp the full understanding of the issues faced by our youth in the modern world.
Thumbs up Cara x
This was a great coming of age book. I enjoyed the story and the characters perspectives. It was very well written and R.Jones spoke true to the characters. I would recommend for teenagers and for young adults.
It is ok to be yourself.
