He has worked in a crematorium, a zoo, a garage and a post office, before - happily - giving it all up to write books. Kevin is the award-winning author of eight novels and lives in North Yorkshire. 'Kevin Brooks just gets better and better, and given that he started off brilliant, that leaves one scratching around for superlatives' - Sunday Telegraph . 'He's an original. And he writes one hell of a story' - Meg Rosoff, author of How I Live Now 'A masterly writer' - Mail on Sunday
[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.
