Iboy




iBoy is a thrilling young adult novel from Kevin Brooks.
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
