Review Text

Fourteen-year-old Ashley cares for her arthritic mother, with little support. After dark, however, she adopts another persona, taking huge risks climbing walls to spray her graffiti signature. Eddie Beale tempts Ashley to become part of his gang, and when she feels she is being stalked, she thinks Eddie can help. There are many threads to the plot of this nail-biting thriller that will keep older readers gripped to the final twist. (14 yrs +) (Kirkus UK)show more
