The Chain

Publisher: Barrington Stoke

Review

How often do we wonder if things might have turned out differently but for a single random act or event?

Four young people in four stories have the course of their lives changed by a single book. Cal is tempted by the sense of belonging he believes that joining a gang will bring; Joe is prepared to gamble everything to make up for his loser-Dad’s failings; Ben, who cheats on every girl he meets, might finally be running out of luck; and Kate desperately needs a way to help her through her father’s illness.

Clear and accessible language is combined with mature subject matter in this thought-provoking, dyslexia-friendly book for teens.
