An electrifying novel from the Carnegie medal-winning Kevin Brooks. Now a Netflix movie starring Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones). Before the attack, sixteen-year-old Tom Harvey was just an ordinary boy. But now fragments of a shattered iPhone are embedded in his brain and it's having an extraordinary effect... Because now Tom has powers. The ability to know and see more than he could ever imagine. And with incredible power comes knowledge - and a choice. Seek revenge on the violent gangs that rule his estate and assaulted his friend Lucy, or keep quiet? Tom has control when everything else is out of control. But it's a dangerous price to pay. And the consequences are terrifying. . . 'A compulsive, atmospheric mystery' Sunday Times 'A masterly writer, and this book would put many authors of 'grown up' detective fiction to shame' Mail on Sunday Kevin Brooks is the award-winning author of nine gripping teenage novels, usually with a thrilling detective twist. His novels, Being, Black Rabbit Summer, Killing God (published as Dawn in the USA) and Naked are also available from Penguin. Kevin's brand new novel, The Bunker Diary, will be published in 2013.

Reviews

[Kevin Brooks'] pacey plots, masterly style and philosophical ideas in novels such as Martyn Pig, Killing God and Black Rabbit Summer have made him a cult among teens. This, though, is the big one. Its power as literature draws on a reality that few adult novelists have the stomach to address. It should be read by everyone. -- Amanda Craig * The Times * Children's Book of the Month: Gripping, streetwise and profound. -- Geraldine Brennan * The Observer * iBoy is a hugely readable revenge fantasy....confoundedly gripping. -- Nick Tucker * Independent on Sunday *

Tom realizes he has superpower after parts of a cell phone, dropped from a high-rise building, become imbedded in his brain. He battles with his urge to seek revenge on the gang that raped his childhood friend and beat him or to control his newfound powers. This book is realistic, frightening, and a real sci-fi page-turner. (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
