A Good Page-turner

I also found this a good, light, page-turner. The colour reversal created some thought-provoking moments: the dark brown plaster that one of the nought students had to wear having hurt her head, for example. I thought the gradual disillusionment of Callum and his family was well handled and made the descent into terrorism believable.

The only quibble I had was with the kidnapp of Sephy. I found it difficult to believe that, having been beaten up, in considerable pain and fearing for her life, she would be in a position to want to consumate her relationship with Callum, who had ultimately betrayed her friendship and trust.

Emily, which disappearance of Lynette? There were two. The first when she lost her mind or the second when she committed suicide?

An engaging read which, although I don't think I'll be in a rush to read the others in the trilogy, I would recommend to any interested teenager.
